Nurturing the Whole Child
You are invited to attend a Nature Art Workshop on 22nd March in Vancouver with Marghanita Hughes.
As parents and teachers, we have an important role to play in nurturing every child’s creative potential, one that is full of wonder, joy and imagination.
During this unique workshop you will learn engaging ways you can support children to feel and express their creative spirit.
Here are just a few of the delightful nature art activities we will be exploring during our workshop:
Storytelling with Nature
Music, Dance and Poetry – Celebrating the Butterfly Life cycle
Forest Fairies and Gnomes
We Protect What We Love
Prayer Flags and Meditation Pebbles
Through exploration and discovery, these nature-based activities awaken children’s’ senses, minds and hearts and help them to express their feelings, ideas, thoughts and urges.
Enabling children to better understand their deep-rooted connection with nature and one another in ways that are fun and encourage them to explore and celebrate their unique sense of creativity. Suitable for all ages, we will explore how we can infuse the activities into our curriculum.
Creativity now is as important in education as literacy, and we should treat it with the same status.” – Sir Ken Robinson
