He brought home new creative ideas and experience.

LEAD FACILITATOR REVIEW

Ahmad was amazing! I loved that he treated each kid as an individual and worked with them to support and challenge their skills.

They are more in touch with nature and like teaching what they learned at home. They are more adventurous, and were inspired to do different things they were not used to.

Introduction

Soulspace at the Sage Street Mill offers an after-school  studio-based arts and wellness opportunity for kids! Come check it out!

 

Young artists ages 6-12 have a unique opportunity to experience regular weekly access to studio space, and nature trails in order to explore and build their skills, ideas, talents and connect with nature and friends! We encourage our artists to utilize the studio facilities and nature trails, experiment with different mediums, discuss their artwork with others, keep an arts journal, while exploring their personal interests and solo projects, and inspiration from contemporary artists and art movements from all around the world! They will also benefit by receiving individual guidance and kind feedback in all projects.

 

Art Stations include; painting on wood, canvas, paper, molding with clay, drawing, creating sculptures using wood blocks and found objects. Students will also learn and practice evidence based mindfulness practices and exercises that reduce stress and cultivate joy and wellness integrated into each session.
