Be Mother Earth: Mixed Media Nature Exploration for Kids

Instructor: Chantal Solomon

An interactive exploration of our natural environment with children. Through forest walks, creative activities and games, participants will explore and focus on specifics area of nature and look for the message in the moment. For example: visit a creek and talk about what it is like to be a creek and the role that it plays in relation to the larger community of plants and animals. Then explore ways there could be an upset to the river, such toxic cleaning products etc. Students then reflect on the experiences through a creative activity to discover what the creek is telling them. Pictures are then taken of the creations which will then be compiled at the end of the program to deliver a message from “mother earth”. A fun, open, creative process oriented journey for participants whom enjoy spending time in nature and exploring the everyday magic around us.
