Festival of Chrysanthemums at Children’s Creative Center

 

On November 15, Children’s Creative Center ‘Blessing’ hosted the annual festival of chrysanthemums.

This was for the sixth time for the Public Relations Agency Profile to organize the festival of the latest flowers of the season to bid farewell to autumn. There are over 3000 species of chrysanthemums all over the world. This marvelous flower is considered to be a non-official symbol of Japan. It is very popular in Georgia as well.

 

 

Every year, the Public Relations Agency Profile holds the

festival of chrysanthemums for its client companies. “Normally, we do it in the open air, basically in old Tbilisi districts. We allot one table to each company and they have to handle the bouquets of chrysanthemums. We cover it in morning TV programs. However, this year, we have decided to hold this festival at Children’s Creative Center Blessing as it is a newly founded firm,”  representative of Profile Public Relations Agency, founder of the festival told Georgian Journal.

Children’s Creative Center,  located at 39, Ilia Chavchavadze ave, at the side of Kartu Bank’s Head office that stands opposite the Vake Park, was opened on September 20, 2011. Its founder, Inga Bless was inspired while residing in Moscow where she lived until recently. “I myself have a son who is four years old. Such kind of creative centers is very common and popular in the Russian capital as well as in the USA and Western European countries. On arriving in Tbilisi, I discovered that there was none of their Georgian analogue here. Therefore, I decided not to wait for others and founded it myself,” Inga told Georgian Journal.

The center is open for all kids aged from 1 to 12 years. Reportedly, teachers are being chosen by children themselves, as they are the main characters during the casting. This is also quite a new approach, as earlier kids did not have any rights in Georgia as in the former Soviet country and the only thing that they were expected to do was to obey adults. By this step the children will most probably learn from the very early age that they too are able to have their own opinion and can change something. This will also protect them from ‘over-strict and over-serious teachers,’ as it’s almost impossible to cheat a child – they are very transparent while dealing with adults. At Blessing children can learn over 20 subjects, including sports, music, dancing, languages, psychology and plural logopedics. There is also a section called ‘small scientist’, which covers developing of logic, attention and memory among little kids. There is also one novelty: if earlier, at the former Pioneers’ Palace, these sections were called “circles”; now they have been renamed “clubs”, which sounds more western and show that Blessing is apt to instill western tutorial approaches in Georgia.

If you want to leave your children alone and not worry about their well-being, you can calmly do so at Children’s Creative Center Blessing, where you will enjoy beautiful, clean and well-equipped atmosphere, highly professional teachers, authorial methods and visual possibilities that will encourage your children to physical and creative activeness. The motto of the company is New Way of Thinking. The center is open every day, including weekends, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Until the end of November, there is a special action that implies two free hours as a present that will help the parents choose appropriate subjects for their kids. If they choose at least 8 hours they will pay only GEL 60 that is around Gel 7 per hour, which is a serious discount. Parents can either wait near the monitor, watching their children or leave them alone till the end of their course.

Different kinds of compositions were made out of chrysanthemums and exhibition of small painters was held under the festival’s aegis. The members of the Blessing presented concert numbers as well. The contest was open to all kids who wished to participate. To the surprise of all visitors, the winners of the best bouquets turned out to be two small boys – Alexandre Parulava and Alexandre Nadareishvili. They were awarded with special teddy-bears and one-month free certificate for attending the Blessing.

The members of the center performed the dance that had been specially rehearsed for the event. At the end the participants of the festival as well as all its visitors were served with the cakes cooked in the shape of chrysanthemums.
