The abacus, that ancient, no-batteries-required, bead-based calculator, is making a comeback in after-school programs.
The course is about Abacus education. We use numbers 0-9 and the abacus as the prime tool to develop the mental abilities of the child. This is not a mathematics course! We are simply using the child’s ability to do mental arithmetic to increase the productivity of the brain and to enhance mind power.
Scientific analyses indicate abacus training can improve a child’s ability to:
and process information.
But how can it accomplish all that, and so much more?
Our brain has two hemispheres, the left brain and the right brain. About 95% of our children use only the left brain, which provides the ability to analyze information concerning languages and sound. But the right side of the brain, which is focused on thinking, creativity and integration of information, needs to be used and stimulated as well.
Learning to use the abacus can help develop this right brain/left brain integration.
Freehand School of Art is conveniently located on Yonge Street in Toronto (6 blocks north of Lawrence on the East Side of the city), and offers children and adults art courses and summer art immersion day camps for kids. We provide a focused and informative approach to art instruction which allows students to discover the expressive possibilities of new materials and techniques.
At Freehand School of Art, our aim is to engage our students with the world around them using eye, mind and hand. There is a fundamental drive in all of us to create. Young children naturally express what they see, think and feel though their artwork. Often, this natural process becomes inhibited as they grow up. We are committed to nurturing creativity in young children and re-igniting it in everyone else.
Freehand School of art is owned and operated by Vivian East who brings a high level of expertise in art education gained in more than 30 years of involvement in arts communities in Toronto, and Julia Ramdeholl who brings current perspectives on the arts to the school.
Both partners are qualified teachers, members of the Ontario College of Teachers and the Ontario Society for Education through Art.

There are many benefits of learning chess. A child learns to think independently and make decisions.

The child develops spatial imagination and creativity skills.
