PD Day April: The Day of Nothing!
April 24 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$56.00
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
