"On Thursday 6th June 2013 I attended the Creative Aspirations workshop run by ECTARC.  It was fantastic! I see myself as being quite creative and aim to inspire that passion in the children I work with (as well as the educators). This workshop delivered above and beyond my expectations. From delving around the theorists and being refreshed of their approaches towards creativity, to hands on play and interaction with the whole group - a great reminder all round to empower children with the passion of creating and the journey it can lead them on. I highly recommend this workshop to anyone - whether you believe you're creative or not - it was very well put together and lots of fun. I went back to my centre filled with new ideas and on sharing this with the other educators they caught the creative bug through me reflecting back to them.  5 paint splats out of 5!"
