Welcome to Paperbirds!
My name is Barbara and I am the founder of Paperbirds - Art with Kids.
I am also a graphic designer, art lover but foremost a mum of three wonderful children. We all love to draw and paint together, and try out new techniques and let our creativity flow. I've been drawing, crafting and painting with kids of different ages for many years and occasions, and I would love to see your little and older artist in one of my classes.
Fostering creativity won't just increase a child's chances of becoming the next Picasso. It will also help to develop mentally, socially, and emotionally. Creating art may boost young children's ability to analyze and problem-solve in many ways.
As kids manipulate a paintbrush, their fine motor skills improve. By counting pieces and colors, they learn the basics of math. When children experiment with materials, they dabble in science. Most important perhaps, when kids feel good while they are creating, art helps boost self-confidence. And children who feel able to experiment and to make mistakes feel free to invent new ways of thinking, which extends well beyond the craft room.
We hope your child will join one of our classes, workshops or camps and love the process of creating as much as we do.
