Artist for a day
This special project was conceived as an opportunity for children to learn, in a fun and informal environment, how to create artistic objects using various materials. Skills or knowledge were not an impediment because tutors with great experience conducted each workshop in a very accessible manner.
More than 70 children from the Support Association of Physically Disabled Children (ASCHFER), “St Iustin” Association for Children with Diabetes, “TREBUIE” Organization for Children and Adults with Special Needs and the Romanian Association for Autism and ADHD Therapies have had the opportunity to spend the first day of school in a creative way and participate to three art therapy sessions held in Herastrau Park.
The art workshops were conducted by Incubator 107 representatives and all children were anxious to manufacture bracelets using coloured threads and various accessories made of recycled paper, to paint small masks of joy, do Origami, Quilling and various drawings.
Energy was the key factor of a series of games that were played of both children and grownups, because we never lose the kid inside.
Every moment was a special one but the most impressive was considered the soap bubbles game followed by the surprisingly appearance of Baumax mascot. Children learned how to be responsible and to recycle in a creative and fun way but also, by the full involvement of “Access for All” Volunteers, have developed interpersonal relationships for future mutual assistance.
We are grateful for the support offered by our partners: CORA, LS Travel Retail Romania (Inmedio), SonyaMod, HRS Group, Incubator 107, Baumax and Sun Plaza who proved to be a wonderful host.
One of the main objectives of our organization is to establish the premises for the development of a society that will not bring into question aspects such as protection measures, support and opportunities generator initiatives as being exceptional situations, but as being part of everyday normality. HRS is a structure of social economy that promotes social inclusion of people with disabilities and supports the inclusion of those exposed to social exclusion.
