2-day International course Understanding with your hands

This will be a great course in Amsterdam next April delivered by Atelier in een Koffer (Studio in a Suitcase): cultural pedagogue Sabine Plamper & visual artist Titia Sprey:


Looking for inspiration and exchange in the creative field? Welcome to our course for professionals in education or childcare, artists and parents.

Creativity is so much more than drawing something beautiful. It is a way of understanding the world with your hands and learning through play, art and sciences. Children have a natural drive to explore, but modern life often lacks space or time. How do you keep this door open? How do you actually respond well to a (scratch) drawing? What is your role in facilitating children in a creative process? How can you guide them, in small or large groups?

This course is delivered in Amsterdam:

During the 2 day course ‘Understanding with your hands’ a clear vision of child and creativity is substantiated and traditional views are brought up for discussion. The participants work themselves with various simple and also challenging materials, which also appeal to the imagination for children. This course provides surprising insights and many practical new ideas. It is suitable for professionals in education or childcare, artists and parents. No special prior knowledge or skills are demanded, just curiosity and playfulness.

Date: Wednesday 22 & Thursday 23 April 2020. There will be an additional (facultative) program on Friday afternoon 24 April. We will visit a school or childcare centre and close the course in the evening with an inspiring film.

The international 2day course is given yearly in April. Dates for 2021 are 14 & 15 April.
