Turning children into storytellers
“We translate children’s imagination & ideas into art and writing.”
Imagination + Communication
The Dimple Loft is a one of a kind programme where we aim to capture children’s imaginations and foster their love for story-telling through the filmic arts.
Why is storytelling important?
Storytelling is important not just because it’s entertainment, but because it communicates ideas, challenges norms and presents possibilities that could become reality.
4 stages of learning
Children listen to others — and also themselves — as they participate in the activities we’ve designed.
Children observe their surroundings and draw inspiration from what is around them, paying attention to details such as patterns and texture, colour and movement.
Children explore to find ways to use various methods and materials to make their ideas come to life.
Children share by showcasing their work, telling their story and explaining the process of putting it together.
How Our programme benefits Children
Gain Knowledge Organically
Children will seek out information, ask questions and gain knowledge that is of interest to them, so they can use it to support and build on their projects.
Children will increase their vocabulary as they use words to describe and explain what they are doing, how they are feeling, and in some cases, offer their views on the topics of discussion.
Gain Self-Confidence and Self-Awareness
When children are able to try out new activities and work with others in an environment that is free from judgement and competition, they will develop confidence and be able to discover what they like or do not like.
Manage Feelings and Behaviour
Children will have to collaborate with one another for some activities to work, in the process learning how to communicate, share and help each other. They will learn to handle disappointment when something doesn’t work, and celebrate success when something does.
Explore and Use Media & Materials
While some children may have encountered some of the materials given, our activities are designed to give them a chance to freely explore materials for their unique qualities, to experiment and find answers for themselves.
Develop Lateral Thinking Skills
Children get to combine their existing knowledge to come up with something new, and develop indirect and creative approaches to problem solving.
