Summer’s flying by at The Wishing Well and we don’t want you to miss out on summer art and poetry! Next week’s Transforming Medusa: Recreating Stories from Mythology camp filled up overnight and is now FULL. Registration for this camp is closed.
Last week was a full one of nature art, nature poetry, and nature prose at Create a Nature Notebook in the Milton Art Center–a packed and very inspiring workshop which has spawned all sorts of new ideas for workshops, journals, blogs…this workshop runs again at The Wishing Well the last week of July (currently full/closed), and will return in the fall. It is designed to inspire kids to get closer to nature, to create and recreate from observing the flora and fauna around them, and to write poetry and prose out of their real-life and imaginative encounters with the natural world. Judging from the prodigious flow of poems that came out of this workshop, and the tangible joy the kids expressed in all the art projects we embarked on, the plan worked!
I hope to expand this web space to include story-writing, poetry, science, and art resources and links for children and parents who read and write and paint and draw, stay tuned! I am also working on the photo gallery, soon to be unveiled!
The schedule for Fall art, science, and writing workshops and camps will be posted shortly.
