WILD CREATIVE SCHOOLS
We help children build foundational life skills safeguarding their mental and emotional health through:
Nature | Stories | Sensory Art | Body Awareness Games |
Mindfulness | Eco Craft | Yoga
We run nature based experiences for 5-17yo students and staff offering tailored workshops for school camps or holiday programs.
We are experiencing unprecedented levels of stress, anxiety and mental health issues in our children, tweens and teens. They are under pressure academically, over scheduled, have more screen time and less nature time, living through a pandemic and being cared for by overstretched families.
Screens in particular are taking over as the primary form of communication and our kids are losing the ability to experience challenging emotions, develop coping mechanisms and build their resilience.
Wild Creative Workshops offer students a safe space to develop a conscious awareness of how what benefits their mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.
They will enrich their emotional intelligence, improve interpersonal skills and increase their capacity for self regulation.
* Healthy Body Image
* Taking healthy risks
* Transforming Failure
We offer one-off workshops or ongoing weekly sessions whereby students can integrate their prior learning to a more profound level.

A SAMPLE OF MINDFULNESS ACTIVITIES:
Mindfulness for kids is expressed within playful movement and observation.
For adults it is more focused around stillness and contemplation.
Our activities reflect this understanding.
FOUND OBJECT ART
Every space has everyday objects which can be transformed into art in which we can view the space and ourselves completely differently.
The humble pencil is capable of incredible expression. Transform this everyday tool into a sound storm and create a stormy artwork!
Sounds can be made on multiple surfaces, indoor or outdoor. This exercise offers a playful, movement based exploration of sounds which helps dispel pent up energy and redirect focus.
Mindfulness through the senses and careful observation.
No instruments required! Just use your bodies to create different rhythms and shift stagnant energy or stress.
MINDFUL MANDALAS (Land art)
Through creating a mandala (circle representing the universe/world) your inner rhythms fall into sync with one another and you can calm down.
Can you move without dropping a stick when balancing it on your finger? What about remaining connected to a friend who is balancing the stick on the other end?!
A playful , movement based mindfulness practise.
GRAVITY GLUE + STONE STACKING
To have a great stack, you need a stable foundation. A playful mindfulness exploration of science and nature that requires persistence and patience.
