The Festival ARSENAL OF IDEAS is an interdisciplinary educational project for children and adolescents, an interactive exhibition and presentation of new educational trends, projects and programs.
The exhibition of paintings made by children with special needs “White Rainbow” that will be held in Mystetskyi Arsenal presents the paintings that are made using the unique technique ArtDayCare, that was specially created for the children with special needs at the age of 3 to 6 years old. These techniques allow children to open their potential and help them to adapt themselves in the society.
The paintings were created by 8 foster children of the school-kindergarten for children with autism “A Child with the Future” at the age of 3 to 6 years old. 18 paintings will be displayed at the exhibition.
For the first time the exhibition were presented by CHILDREN’S ART GALLERY OF UKRAINE in November 2014 at the Centre of Ukrainian Culture and Arts. Read more information.
ARTDAYCARE technique was created by the chief curator of CHILDREN’S ART GALLERY OF UKRAINE Sergiy Andriyenko in Canada. In 2014 Sergiy Andriyenko implemented the charitable program ArtDayCare in Ukraine, as a result of which these unique paintings of little artists appeared. You can see them if you visit the exhibition from May 27 till May 31.
The main peculiarity of the technique is a simple game process of drawing on the horizontal surface KID’S CANVAS. This technique is made to help parents, teachers and preschool teachers who deal with children with special needs. Besides that it helps to socialize children, direct them not only to the process of learning new skills but also creating certain conditions for concentration attention on feelings, emotions. These methods encourage children to come in touch with other people and environment. This technique is also very important for developing fine motor skills of children’s fingers.
The organizers of the exhibition are the Charitable Foundation “Talents of Ukraine” and National Art and Culture Museum Complex “Mystetskyi Arsenal”.
During the exhibition there will be held art workshops for children with special needs (problems with hearing, vision, intellectual development), as well as free admission to the festival for groups of children deprived of parental care, children of migrants from eastern Ukraine, and children with special needs.
