This facility has been created from the need and initiative of parents looking for a place for their own children. Places that would be as non-directive as possible, respecting the subjectivity of children. We also believe that frequent and intensive contact with the creators and practitioners of different disciplines (not only artistic) will be inspiring to children in terms of self-development.
Activities in which children can participate include, among others, spatial art classes, ceramics, music, science, drama activities, history, computer graphics. We also organise other special interest activities following the needs and interests of children. The goal is to trigger a spontaneous interest of the child in a variety of practices and areas of knowledge, in which the child can participate whenever he or she feels such a need.
We are an school implementing the core curriculum defined by the Ministry of National Education basing on the guidelines of creative pedagogy.
Primary school and kindergarten PRACOWNIA (means in English ATELIER or STUDIO) are located in Widzewska Manufaktura (WiMa) - a place where programmers gather representatives of creative industries. We are launching further studios and inviting creators whose fields do not have representation among entities present in the area of WiMa.
We decided to adapt the industrial space, being aware that this is not a typical solution,
because we organize our space in a different way than typical schools. The main space is the place of common play and being together. It is surrounded by spaces dedicated to didactic and creative activities. The space will grow successively with subsequent children arriving and subsequent studios being launched.
Every day we use the park in WiMa located about 300 meters from us. For longer walks we go to Widzewski Park or Nad Jasienia Park.
