Art Project at Day Care

As part of the OBJEKTI 5.0 programme, a group of children from Kirkkojärvi Day Care Centre took part in an art workshop. Children aged 3-7 years made marbled ink paintings in the workhop.

The workshop was led by art teacher Elina Hartzell. Hartzell holds a Master of Arts from Aalto University, the Department of Art Education. She has completed art studies as well and worked as an artist. Through art education, Hartzell wants to show her students how making art can build bridges that help us to see and experience ourselves and our common environment.
