2013 9/28 Volunteers for “Mini Me” Paper Me Project – Bright Side (ChingChuan, Hsinchu)

Here comes another fun and valuable course for both the kids and volunteers. In the past year and with almost a dozen workshops, one of the current trends I noticed is that kids are hesitant to present their work. Although they are very familiar with our returning volunteers and are definitely a rambunctious bunch,  when it comes time to showcase their masterpieces or provide audio tracks for short films, they need a warm nudge and support. We all do! I believe one of my first “big” presentations outside of school was when I was in my mid 20s, took place in New Zealand for a pretty large audience spanning from 6-7 different countries. I was shaking in my boots!

課程目的:  ”小自己”工作坊是一系列帶領小朋友探尋內在自我的課程,孩子們將透過藝術創作的形式逐漸挖掘、認識內心中那個純粹完整的’自己’。 讓每個小朋友都能認識自己,尊重自己,表達自己,同時能尊重身邊的每一個人。

小朋友的學習重點: 1. 透過不同觀點重新認識自己並能有創意地表達自我。

2. 紙作技藝與創意呈現方法。

Purpose:  The “Mini Me” is a series of empowerment courses that commands an introspection of knowing oneself first, and thus, how to interact with others. Through innovative, creative forms and guidance of volunteers children will learn valuable tools to tap their “inner child” and express themselves.

Children Will Learn: Utilize different outlook to learn about themselves and express themselves creatively. Paper art, creative presentation exhibition skills.
