The gesture communicates and brings us a message. The gesture is the bridge that involves us and forces us to observe, ask and identify.
Gestures are movements of the body that express an intention but the intention is an ambiguous and subjective concept, unique and personal which came from our purest inner.
In the universe, we find an element, which has been discredited and worthless for a time ago. When it is mentioned the word “value“, we should understand it as the set of qualities and information that it entails.
Normally, scribbling is essential to kids developing pre-writing skills. The natural development of graphic expression begins with the gesture as language and develops itself according to the speed of writing.
Scribbling is not only for kids, adults do it often. Scribbling also helps develop fine motor skills needed for writing, drawing and other related skills.
There is not a rigid methodology in this project as such, it is an attitude of trust that changes everything, whatever the process and discipline used.
What does a child do when given confidence and time?
– To play!
The game is the most primitive and instinctive manifestation we have. It is the first “method” we use to explore our own needs.
The space has a series of favourable conditions to develop an environment of trust and love. Without comparisons, no judgments and where diversity is as rich as learning.
Some approaches and values the project works as a standard manifesto:
• The importance of group work. The group is part of the same speech.
• Involve all the senses in the bowl.
• Encourage to explore new materials.
• Working the expression from music, drawing and dance.
• Use music in activities as a conditioning agent to encourage and channel expression.
• Work on different dimensions and materials.
• There are no value judgments on the results obtained, only observations and reflections. This helps not to be judged or classified.
• Promote free play games using arts.
It all begins by telling a story as a game which the participants complete with the resources we have for the game. Influenced and stimulated by music, they develop gestures based on their needs and their searches. Their explorations are determined by what they feel at the moment.
Sound, visibility, jumping, movement, speed, or symmetry are examples used as vehicles for expression is enriching because children can use it as a communication tool. Different types of art can reveal children’s thoughts, feelings, and interests.
