professional make-up lesson
The school year ended in the children's film Studio, where children with problems with communication and social adaptation are engaged. During the year, the Studio made 10 films lasting from 2.5 to 23 minutes. Of course, while these are educational films that are interesting to the children and their families, not the General public. But for many children, participation was a real victory. Parents noted the success of their children at the final meeting at the end of the year.
Gleb's (11 years old) mom:
- I think that the Studio has become for my son the place where he comes to learn to be friends, to communicate, to resolve conflicts and to find a common language with peers. Gleb had big problems at school and other children's groups. I am glad that he found a place where he is accepted with all the features, where he feels support and understanding. For our family, this is the most important thing, and acting is already in the background.
Zoe's (15 years old) mom:
- Zoe very long lived in an orphanage and there she was considered the best student, she was instructed to look after other children. Now Zoya is sure that she is the best at doing any business, loves to command. Psychologically, she is much younger than her real age. It is important for a girl to understand her strengths and weaknesses, it is important to learn to live with the idea that someone can do better, and there is nothing wrong. The Studio helped to make Zoe's self-esteem more adequate.
Grandma of Tolley and Elijah (12 and 9 years):
- The Studio is one of the few places where children always go with pleasure. Here they feel part of the overall creative work. Tolya is especially lucky, because in the future he wants to become an operator, and he has the opportunity to test himself in practice. We are happy for Tolya, because before that we changed a lot of studios and sports sections and were already worried that he would not be able to settle down anywhere.
Parents of other children noted that children began to feel more confident, learn to make efforts to remember texts, give in to difficulties less.
Many guys from the Studio do not go to regular school, but study at home. They have a limited circle of communication with peers. The Studio helps children find friends, try their hand in different areas, see themselves in different images, try on different characters, play different ways of relationships. This helps to improve the social competence of children, increases self-esteem, facilitates their access to a large society.
We are grateful for the help of everyone who supported our project!
