CHILDREN'S CAMP -LITTLE ARTMILL

(ARCHIVE)

Every summer since 2005, a 500-year-old former mill in rural south Bohemia has turned into a creative hotbed, attracting artists from all over the world to create works inspired by the genius loci and also to encourage children's creativity at an art-oriented summer youth camp."  Prague Post

 

The joy of learning is one of the most essential components in the joy of living. Each human being is born not only needing to learn for their survival, but with a true aptitude and pleasure in the act of learning for their happiness.

 

Creativity, which we believe is innate in all children, is fostered at ArtMill in a broad sense: not only in traditional arts and music, but in learning how to experience and see the world around us in a creative way. The way we draw a flower blossom is directly related to how we pick an herb, smell it, and sprinkle it on our lunch. At all ages, contact with the natural world offers metaphors for expansion of the spirit, and compassion for one's fellow human being.

 

The eco-system around the lake is not only a living lesson in nature's structure, but a place to play and swim, watch the pattern of baby ducks gliding after their mothers, or collect reeds for weaving. Developing an appreciation for nature and her gifts is an integral part of the human experience that will foster in our youth an involvement in our planet's survival. We believe that if this awareness can be nurtured in children and youth at an early age, they have a chance of a much more fulfilling, creative, and responsible adulthood.
