Director's Notes

Its Spring! The good weather is upon us and its time to get outside and explore. One thing that can take your kids art to the next level is TOUCHING!!!!!!! TOUCH EVERYTHING (that is safe to touch of course!) Textures are tough to visually grasp for some so touching is a great way to introduce multiple modalities into solidifying textural concepts. Tactile learning thru literally hugging a tree, Walking on the grass barefoot, Rubbing blossoms and blooms between your fingertips all will help the brain process what it Looks like thru the sense of touch!

Colors are also abounding this time of year — talk about the difference between the crocus purple and a lilac purple! Can you see differences in the new leaves green color to when they mature and become “adult leaves?”

Now is the time that not just the Earth but we call come alive!
