Children and Families: Writing + Movement
Cycles in Movement and Writing, A Family Program
See what happens when the writing process becomes visible and includes movement. Using art and nature as inspiration, participants become aware of how the way we feel in our bodies is connected to the way we express ourselves. The workshop will consist of 10-minute cycles: a movement/talking cycle; a writing/making cycle; a reading/showing cycle; a breathing/writing cycle; and a processing cycle. Facilitated by educators Anita Rose Merando and Elizabeth Castagna.
- Meet on Museum Hill
- Suggested age range: 6 and up
