The Atelier

An Atelier is “a space rich in materials, tools, and people with professional competencies… a place for child’s research” - Loris Malaguzzi.

One of the most distinguishing elements of the ECC is the Atelier, which is a unique studio that is rich in tools and resources.

The Atelier is an intentional space that is used to apply specific concepts and experiment with different materials including paint, clay, stones, shells, beads and other recycled items.

The children’s manipulation of various media is not a separate component of the curriculum but rather an essential element in the symbolic representation of learning that reveals the “hundred languages of children”.

The Atelier is a hands-on workshop where children are continuously engaged in visual languages and creative expressions.
