These are the benefits of visual arts:

  • Creativity: Arts allow children to develop a sort of creative and innovative spirit. It favours reflection and sharing positive experiences. This creativity and sense of wonder reinforce children’s capacities in other school disciplines.
  • Multiple intelligence: Artistic expression exists in various forms ranging from manual to cerebral that allow for problem solving.
  • Self-discovery: Art enables non-verbal expressions of joy and pain. Expressing one’s self and reinventing one’s self through the practice of visual arts can increase self-esteem and help discover new aspects of one’s personality.
  • Socialization: Children learn to respect each other by playing games. They learn teamwork, empathy and how to express themselves while accepting and respecting differences.

Artistic summer camps in French at CAVA are held July 2nd to August 10th.

CAVA summer camps offer children a chance to live a unique artistic experience while practising their French. The theme this year is NATURE URBAN each week will touch on a different artistic style that brings together aspects of nature in an urban centre. Children will discover their city including the Mill Creek Ravine, and they will learn to use these environments to create different artworks.
