Achievements

Drawing like speaking is a natural human response. In every culture whether with sticks in the sand or pencil and paper – children draw. They draw what they see as important in their environment: people, shelter, trees and animals. The plan is to teach children the basics of drawing before they conclude “I can’t”.

Sunbird focuses on teaching them basic shapes and then move to symbols and continue to develop their own drawing strategies.

 

  • Learning basic elements of shape.
  • Combining basic elements of shapes to form different objects.
  • Breaking down an object or image into the basic elements of shape.
  • Sketching and shading.
  • Using different techniques in painting.
  • Focus on lighting from different angles.

 

  • Sunbird focuses on using the Monart’s Method and different tools and techniques for drawing and painting.
  • Teachers promote  games to increase art stimuli.
  • Group work and observation.

 

 

  • Building confidence in drawing ability by teaching the child how to react emotionally to ongoing experiences.
  • Will be able to develop their own styles within the parameters of drawing and painting.
  • Creating aesthetic awareness.

Innovative workshops

Learning Art With Sunbird Early Learning

Innovative workshops:  Drama

 Drama plays a vital role in the cognitive, physical, emotional, intellectual and social development in preschool age children and also builds self esteem and confidence in front of their peers.

Our Early Years Drama classes are designed to take your children into an imaginary world where they can comfortably explore feelings, words, sounds, movement and their relationships with others. We guide your children through each story creatively, allowing them to imagine their very own version as they all become the sights, sounds and characters.

Theaterbugs classes continue for the second month and there is room for more children to participate.

Josef from Germany, who is a Arts and Performance trainer at local pre-schools, as well as a professional clown, balloon artist and puppeteer, is heading the class at Sunbird

Sunbird Quote of the Day

Children thrive on praise! It’s more important to praise a child for his good works & his good behaviour than it is to scold him for his bad behaviour. Always accentuate the positive!
