WINTER 2017

ANNOUNCING NEW EXPRESSIVE ARTS PROGRAM

(11 weeks)

Nature is the setting in which we can drop into our truest and most expressive selves. Just like a lightning bolt slashing through a storm cloud or a horse neighing wildly as its eyes catch sight of a new, green barrel of hay, we as human beings also have that fire of expression inside of us waiting to explode into the world in our own unique way. Through the use of music, poetry, storytelling, and hands on activities with material from the land, your kids will learn to express themselves in a more expanded, authentic way and deepen their relationship with themselves and each other, aided by the earth and the elements!

This program also includes time for fishing (in the Spring), fire-building, bow and arrow shooting, capture the flag, and other nature-based skills/games.

We have shelter for inclement weather.

Time: 9 AM to 3 PM for ages 6 to 12
(Mature 5 and 1/2 year olds are considered on a case by case basis.)

Dates: TBD based on enrollment.

This is an 11-week program, with 2 bonus days in early February available for an additional fee. $25 for one day and $50 for two.

Options: A four-hour option is available. Contact me for details. I am also willing to run programs any day with a minimum of four full-paying participants. Contact me with any questions.

Tuition: Sliding scale $500 to $575 for six-hour program or $400 to $450 for the four-hour program. A $75 non-refundable deposit to register must be received by February 3rd. Custom payment plans are available with a $225 non-refundable down payment. Sign up for Expressive Arts Program and Home School Program and get 50% off one program. Payment through Paypal is available for a fee.
