Creativity Camp for Children
Explore stories through reading, writing, drama and art.
Over the course of four days, children were put through their creative paces during the Dubai International Writers’ Centre’s first ever Children’s Creativity Camp. Centered around the wonderful book Fortunately, the Milk, by Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell, participants were involved in creating their own story and characters. Bestselling children’s author Rachel Hamilton helped develop their reading and writing skills, while mime artist, Lara Matossian, encouraged them to display their talents in drama. Art was also on the daily menu, with teachers from Dubai schools working with the children to bring their characters to life in pictorial format. This triumph of creative teamwork was enjoyed by teachers and children alike!
