Since 2003 Children123 Studio leads creative educational programs for Russian-speaking kids in the US as we believe that creativity is an important step on the path of becoming free, authentic and self-expressed human beings.
Children123 studio is introducing kids to various creative techniques, among which are:
- Musical theater performances
- Movie shoots
- Creation of cartoons
- Writing and recording audio-stories
- Puppet shows
- Exploring journalistic techniques culminating in news program preparation
- Writing poetry
- and many, many more!
Since 2007 each year Children123 Studio is organizing and carrying out unforgettable creative family camps, where in a family/nature set up in New York area kids live in tents and have classes out in the open and parents teaching them things from a perspective they will seldom be taught in schools, such is math and logic, science experiments, history of civilization, survival in the wild, theater, etc.
Children123 Studio is a thriving community of Russian-speaking people bringing up their kids in the USA. We encourage our little ones to understand and master their first language - Russian; thus many of our programs are geared towards development of creative skills in Russian language.
Studio is lead by Masha Shkolnik Leder - a journalist, poet and a songwriter (with 3 CDs of songs produced in NY, USA), author of musical plays for kids produced in New York since 2008, a mother of two, who is passionate about bringing up creative kids.
