Cultivation of creativity and character takes more than just routine lectures. “At GRAM’S we don’t teach children how to fish,” says Jean Chu, Programme Developer at GRAM’s Learning Centre. “We value children’s opinions and motivate them to share their ideas during class discussions. They will then be encouraged to put their ideas and thoughts intro writing or their art pieces,” she added.
In an interesting programme that exposes them to art and language simultaneously, children get to create their own books at GRAM’S. They are free to decide if they want to write their story first, or draw their story first. They explore new ideas on what to add to their narrative or how to illustrate their characters.
