There's a creative in all of us, with a little guidance we can unlock it. It takes courage to try and unlock that creativity with a group of strangers as it may leave one with a sense of vulnerability. We show participants how to use art as a medium to engage and form relationships between individuals in artistic group exercises for the greater good of society. Participants are provided with the tools needed for designing and implementing activities for group problem solving in challenging times.
Creative interaction is one of the many modules offered by BAP. The Butterfly Art Project prides itself on providing our beneficiaries and Community Art Facilitators with the best possible training, facilitated by the best trainers. The training programme currently offers 13 modules, with a variety of subjects to produce well rounded CAF’s that have the skills and expertise to help us fulfill our mission.
Picture Perfect: Participants of the Creative Interaction module created a Group Community Mural and built friendships that would hopefully, last a lifetime.
In the Creative Interaction module participants discovered how to form relationships between individuals in artistic group exercises for the greater good of society. Participants were exposed to how groups can bond through creative and artistic interaction. Community Art Facilitators were given practical experience in group facilitation, how to understand group productivity, and how to read group dynamics. They were also provided with the tools needed for designing and implementing activities for group problem solving in challenging times.
The Creative Interaction module encourages participants to work together through interactive activities like Building Bridges. Building Bridges enables participants to listen to each other, form a plan and to cooperate to complete the activity successfully. This module can also be adapted to a 3-hr team building session for other organisations and corporates.
This training was special as we had our very own Heart for Art Team Leader, Charles Jansen co-train with trainer Sanet Visser. Charles had started his journey to become a trainer earlier this year. Charles, with tons of experience in working with children had to adapt his skills to train adults to become Community Art Facilitators (CAF). With the growth and success, he's shown in Heart for Art, he was a natural trainer, engaging with participants and providing them with first hand advice on how to be the best possible CAF for their children and respective communities.
