What is Colouring Dreams?
Colouring Dreams is a personal development experience designed to motivate, inspire and build confidence in children between 4 and 14 years old who are facing emotionally and physically challenging circumstances.
The program’s methodology allows the participants to connect with their dreams, express their emotions and discover their talents through Art Therapy, Music, and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques.
What do we do in Colouring Dreams?
Through the discussion of goals and dreams, Colouring Dreams program allows children to recognise their talents, develop the confidence and sense of identity needed to pursue their dreams. It develops the following areas: social, physical and emotional intelligence in a fun and nurturing environment.
Through Art Therapy, participants envisage and draw their dreams in full colour on a pair of white pyjamas. The House to Grow pyjamas are used as a metaphorical anchor, connecting the children permanently with an inspiring and colourful future and encouraging them to keep on dreaming.
