The Arts and Nature
1:00PM – 4:00PM
In this fun, hands-on workshop, adults will experience the Look-Move-Build-Sketch planning model. This approach encourages multi-faceted arts experiences that support children’s individual interests and needs (and is especially helpful for children with sensory integration challenges). The projects explored during this workshop are inspired by nature and serve as another way to help children make deeper connections with the natural world.
