Event description

Description

Early Years Educators are invited to join professional artist -educators from 4elements Living Arts in a hands-on exploration of nature-based materials. Explore how natural materials can be extended from sensory engagement to ecological learning for 18 months to 4 1/2 year olds. We will explore natural fibres and clay as place-based materials that present opportunities for safe risk-taking for more dextrous little ones (scissors, needles, hammers) and sensory fun for the youngest children (getting messy with clay!)


4elements Living Arts has been engaging communities in creative projects and programs that connect people with landscape and place through the arts since 2003, working in contexts of schools, community centres, parks, lakes, rivers and trails. www.4elementslivingarts.org 4elements recently coordinated a team of 6 artists-in-residence working in 6 kindergarten/early learning classrooms in the Rainbow District Schoolboard in Sudbury-Manitoulin over a 3-year period, and has published three books on land-based arts approaches.

The Muskoka workshop will be facilitated by Heather Thoma and Mariana Lafrance, who both are part of 4elements' artist-in-residence team. Heather is a community-based arts educator, and is a weaver, organic farmer and farm-based educator, and project coordinator for non-profit organizations. She has worked with 4elements for over 10 years. Mariana is a franco-ontarian interdisciplinary artist and designer based on Manitoulin Island, who works at the intersections of textiles, installation, performance, video and photography. She has taught workshops in art-making and creative inquiry in schools across Ontario
