The Children of Art Challenge
The Children of Art Challenge is a team building and time management workshop that targets schools, corporate companies, and various organizations who would like to offer their students, employees or members an educational experience through creative challenges.
Each challenge has a different theme and consists of individual and team assignments. The participants will be divided into teams of four and will need to share a limited amount of tools and supplies. The end goal of the challenge is to create a prototype for an original product using the materials provided by the COA team.
What do our clients think?
“We couldn't believe what the groups were able to create in 20 minutes. COA provided fabulous materials for them to work with and everyone eagerly participated. Thanks again for giving us the opportunity to work collaboratively and creatively!”
- Cathy Sutton, Grade 1 teacher, Charles Dickens Elementary, Vancouver BC.
“My students absolutely loved it! They were able to show their creativity while practicing cooperation skills. The program was very well organized and coordinating with the organizers beforehand was simple. The most notable success was the instruction of the program itself. I've had other artists visit the class in the past but always found I needed to be quite a hands-on facilitator. Noya and Jane did an excellent job of managing the class while providing a safe and engaging lesson.”
- Gillian Armstrong, Grade 4 teacher, OLPH Vancouver BC.
