About the Program
Situated in a natural area, this class will ask students to take two different perspectives when engaging with the natural world. Students will be led through an activity that directs them to explore a part of the natural world first through a scientific lens. Students findings will be shared with the whole group. Next, students will be asked to explore the same part of the natural world through the eyes of an artist and will be asked to create an artistic piece to represent their engagement (song, poem, sculpture, drawing etc.). Group discussion and sharing will follow and will focus upon differing ways of knowing, viewing, regarding and exploring the world.

"Rita is organized and has some good activities. I'd recommend this workshop being an hour longer, to give children a chance to relax and enjoy the activities and slow down to enjoy the forest itself as well." - Marcella Edwards
