PD Day April: The Day of Nothing!

April 24 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Let’s explore the idea of NOTHING!  Zero, blank, nil. What does nothing look like? A void, boredom, a black hole? Is it like “putting blue into your head”? The word “nothing” is real, but does “nothing” really exist?

Nothing can be a starting point, it can be a beginning…a blank canvas!  Enjoy a day of rotating activities and projects, combined with fresh air outside!  (a ton of EVERYTHING, really)

Led by artists and ECFTA Arts Educators Eileen MacArthur and Natalie McDonald.

Ages 4 -11 (in two different groups)

$56 per session

Max 24 kids (more…)
