ARTISTIC SUMMER HOLIDAYS 2013 : Art workshops during summer holidays of 2013
Some images of our 2010 Art Workshops, on youtube : Bohemian caravan: We dance !
Our art workshops mix music, dance (Latin America, Eastern Europe, Spain), theatre and visual arts.
They are held by teachers specialized in each area – music, dance, drawing art, sculpture and the children are looked after by our team of qualified monitors.
On Fridays, your children and the pedagogical team will present you two little shows !
at 1:00 pm (for the kids attending mornings)
at 5:00 pm (for the kids attendings days or afternoons)
The Art workshops are open to children from 3 to 12 years old.
The workshops take place from 9 :00 am to 1 :00 pm (lunch meal included) and from 2 :00 pm to 5:00 pm. Children can be hosted from 8:00 am and until 6:00 pm. For children registered only on mornings, the ten o’clock snack and the lunch meal are included (but lunch meal is not compulsory, the child can end the workshop at noon). For children registered for the whole day, the ten o’clock snack, lunch meal and afternoon snack are included. The smaller ones will take a nap at the beginning of the afternoon. Children will be distributed in the activities of the day according to their age – groups of 3 to 5 years old, 6 to 9 years old, 10 to 12 years old. Certain activities will take place outside to enjoy the good weather. If they have one, the children can bring their musical instrument.
Contents of the artistic workshops:
Each workshop of a week long or of a week of half-days long mixes music, dance, theatre and visual art. By participating in our workshops, your child will thus take part in activities involving these three fields. Each week of the summer, a common theme is chosen to gather these different artistic activities under the same "roof”. The themes are chosen in reference to a culture - Russia, Latin America, Canada, etc. or to an artistic activity - the Circus, the Brass band, the Orchestra.
Morning and afternoons workshops of the same week are organized around the same theme and contain both music, dance and visual art, but they differ in the contents of the activities. So, if your child follows morning and afternoon workshops of the same week, he will participate in activities that differ from mornings to afternoons while, of course, being complementary.

INFORMATIONS : by mail info(at)savoiretbien-etre.com or 022.731.75.76 (we speak English)
The supervision of the children is assured by a team of qualified instructors with experience. The artistic activities are led by music, dance and visual arts teachers from the pedagogical team of Savoir et Bien-être
The group of children from 3 to 5 years old is specially very much looked after, permanently having two adult instructors - in addition to the teacher - for a group of 10 children, and three adult instructors if the number of children is slightly superior to 10. We also have one more adult accompanying this particular group of kids whenever the children need to change rooms inside the building of the "99" when attending different workshops, meals and snacks and when we spend time on the inside terrace. Since the building also hosts a kindergarden, the whole place is very much thought for the security of small children. This is also why we use the kindergarden terrace when we go outside with the smallest ones, instead of going out on the outside playground.
For the other groups of children (6 to 9 years old and 10 to 12 years old), the group is looked after by the teacher plus one adult instructor, two if the group is slightly superior to 10 children.
Most of the age groups form classes of around 10 kids (sometimes a little less). As soon as the group goes up to 15 kids, the age group will be cut in two different classes, in order for the kids to be always adequatly looked after.
Casual and not delicate clothing, slippers or indoor shoes, sun hat or cap. If your child already has a special shirt that he uses for painting at his school or kindergarden, you can also put it in his belongings. If he doesn't have one, we will gladly lend one to him.

- We host children who speak any language. There is always at least one person in our pedagogical team who speaks english and also often one person who speaks spanish.
