Miss Dot and Mr Point are back in PLATO! Workshop for children (2,5–4 years) with Hana and Tomáš Volkmer.

Miss Dot and Mr Point guide children in art workshops at PLATO. In this workshop we will explore the yellow and blue colours and the shape of circle. We will also offer a huge drawing area, different types of brushes, foam stamps, colourful adhesive tapes, non-toxic paints and other art materials.

The workshop will be led by two experienced teachers, Hana and Tomáš Volkmer and will respect the age of the children. The workshop is made up of an introductory, movement, instructional, art, relaxation, and story time bloc. Come with your children to create in a focused and calm environment and use the opportunity to meet, maybe even get to know each other.
