This Workshop program for children is started in October 2008, right after Cellsbutton #02 ended. It was dedicated to providing high quality care, learning and sharing knowledge for children. Taken place at our new studio and residency place, we have created a nurturing environment where children can feel happy, confident, and proud of what they worked on and accomplish. Our program initiative is to provide a strong foundation in education through art activities for children's academic success and our programs are focus in innovative, challenging and fun working process. We believed hands-on activity with sensory-rich materials is an enhance stimulation for children development and caused spontaneous learning to happen in miraculous ways.
The broad vision of HONF program sees education as an aid to life. By incorporating practical, daily activities into daily learning, children learn early independence psychological growth through creativity thus also encouraging social intuition through learning by sharing and creating. The teaching method according to our Education Focus Program also focuses on children’s individual sensitivities and tendencies while also believing in the universality of a child's potential and in trusting the spontaneous organizing power of the human mind.
We facilitate and support children to develop according to their own abilities and interests. HONF method is to facilitate a conducive environment and guide children as HONF carefully observe them developed a sense of independence and individual experimentation and learning. HONF believe in creating a safe, free expressing and stimulating environment and respect children as self-directed individuals. Before the workshop, HONF provide teaching for all children in working on their homework thus also to ensure children academic progress in school.
Cells-Kid is specially developed for preschool children (ages 4 – 6 years) with several goal which include:
• Practical life activities along with simple introduction to drawing, art, drama and music that help the children develop independence and refine their motor skills;
• Materials for the development and refinement of the child’s senses;
• Language activities for vocabulary enrichment, reading and handwriting;
• Mathematics activities for early learning (number recognition and understanding the concept of quantities), decimal system work (all 4 math operations), and fractions;
• Small lessons to give the children social skills for living peacefully in community with others.
Our goal is to bring understanding to the next generation of Indonesian people about their culture through the invaluable tool of learning art in early age. This is accomplished by incorporating unique, custom-designed workshops and kits that enrich and broaden the learning experience for every individual. Each workshop emphasizes the importance of the process and the fun of creating and communicating, as much as the final piece of art work that will undoubtedly become a family heirloom, to be proudly used and displayed for years to come.
These focused Art Workshops and "do-it-yourself" kits are the culmination of nearly 10 years of our teaching and workshop experience in Indonesia and around the world.
Every workshop can be comfortably completed within one hour until two hours, which makes them well suited for ordinary schools, outstanding family educational activities, youth group programs at social life and their environment as well as "at-home" family education.
Our workshops and kits have brought knowledge and excitement to children.
We continually strive to bring the Ultimate of this unique educational program to each and everyone through the satisfaction of learning through the arts.
