NTS-supported project takes artistic workshops to students
The “Armarinho, Cantinho da Imaginação” project aims to present the performing arts and add teaching tools for students from public schools in different states.
The “Armarinho, Cantinho da Imaginação” Project, supported by NTS, offers artistic workshops to public schools in different states, in addition to a permanent collection, in the form of a "haberdashery", full of pieces with the objective of bringing an experience culture and spread the performing arts among students.
Each haberdashery is made up of toys, educational games, books, costumes, props, a sound box, projector and DVDs, stimulating the imagination through contact with scenographic objects for theater and storytelling workshops. The workshops illustrate and exemplify the use of haberdashery in a playful and participatory immersion.
“The objective is to offer a playful tool to the educator, so that he can transform the day to day of the classroom, stimulating even more the imagination and creativity of the little ones. And the workshops become an important part of this process precisely because they allow the expansion and sharpening of the students' cultural repertoire”, points out Ewerton Silvino, supervisor of the project.
In the week of May 10, the project made four stops in Japeri, a municipality in the Metropolitan Region of Rio, at the Municipal Schools Carlos Pereira dos Santos, Darcilio Ayres Raunheitti, Pedra Lisa and Frei Maurício Viann. In all, about a thousand students benefited from the playful collection.
The next destination for the haberdashery was in Mauá-SP, between the 16th and 19th of May, with four more schools visited and 2,500 children benefited.
