By Creating you learn is dedicated to children, and teaches them the art of recycling. The Eco Labs revolve around crafts and nature, enabling the young participants to create art pieces with recycled materials using the imagination as a primary tool.
The artist who will run this workshop is Emanuela Ravida; know as RE in the artistic scene. RE is a multidisciplinary artist who graduated in Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Reggio Calabria. For years her artistic research has focused on environmental sustainability through art.
The base for these activities is Feudo S.Pietro, a historic venue that is on course to become a “lung” for the local territory breathing knowledge, agriculture and heritage to the locality.
We envisage a future in which we refer to a “yesterday”, where too many children are locked in an unreal world of video games, and a “today” in which we see the creativity in children unlocked with the ability to use their hands and imagination. They have the right to be, live and feel their authenticity:
Children pay attention when their interest is stimulated and valued……….So let them be.
