Colouring Dreams is an experience of personal development that aims to help children facing life challenges. Through the Healing properties of Art, this program helps children identify their dreams in unfavourable circumstances, connect with them and express their emotions. Through the process of drawing in the House to Grow pyjamas, which our foundation has designed for this project, and where the participants painted their dreams, the children will create a “concept of themselves” within their environment. The program is based on an eight weeks session once a week and aims to start with a new group every time we come to the end of the eight weeks. You will lead our program Colouring Dream for children from 4-9 years old under the supervision of our Managing Director.
