We are so very proud that the Art Pavilion in Zagreb chose Nektarina Non Profit as its delivering partner for the "Learn through creative expression" workshops.
Workshops embrace the principle that arts education can positively and profoundly impact a person’s life, especially when received early in life. By providing avenues for creative exploration, these workshops will expose children and youth to the tangible benefits of arts education through the joys of creating and learning.
Numerous studies indicate that people who receive arts education early in life reap many tangible, long-term, life-changing benefits. From enhanced critical thinking, improved self-esteem and ability to collaborate, to improved scores in math and science, children gain skills that can help them well into adulthood.
Research shows that vibrant and prosperous communities begin with children that are healthy in every domain: language/cognitive/communication abilities, social/emotional skills and physical well-being.
Children who develop arts literacy (knowledge, skills and ability), will have the opportunity to:
- Learn to appreciate the arts as participants and spectators
- Learn technical skills
- Gain a wider view of themselves and their opportunities in the world
- Develop self-confidence and self-worth
- Explore and develop creativity and innovation
- Develop an ability to make decisions independently
- Learn how to work with others
- Develop discipline
- Learn to set and achieve goals
- Improve their odds of success in all areas of their lives
Through activities that are challenging, meaningful, and based on strong arts education principles, workshops we have created together with the Art Pavilion in Zagreb can expect to have a positive impact on the lives of the children it serves.
From increased self-confidence to ability to work with others, the benefits of arts education resonate beyond the development of well-rounded children, and play an integral role in building strong, healthy and dynamic communities.
The invitation for the building of the Art Pavilion in Zagreb was officially published, and Viennese architects Hellmer and Fellmer (famous designers of theatres) were charged with commission. The construction work was performed by two building constructors from Zagreb - Honigsberg and M. Lenuci. After two years - 1897 and 1898 - the building of the Art Pavilion in Zagreb was finished, and the building itself was ceremoniously opened an 15th December 1898 with the representative exhibition called Croatian salon.
