Learn about art, science and wilderness exploration
The Wild Art program espouses life-learning values, and allows participants to discover and share a vast myriad of ideas and activities, loosely focused on art, science, and wilderness exploration.
This autumn will also see a workshop for parents and teachers, exploring ways to follow children’s lead, and expand skills as non-coercive mentors of life-learning children.
Tuesday mornings are reserved for four to eight-year-olds (2 hours).
The Tuesday afternoons program is for eight to 14-year-olds (4 hours).
Adult workshop begins on September 21.
(F)unschool is a program of the Bowen Nature Club.
Embracing the “unschooling” principles of self-directed and explorative learning, adults, teens and children of all ages venture out into various areas of Bowen to explore.
Children must be accompanied by adults. The program is free with a Bowen Nature Club membership.
(F)unschool runs on Thursday afternoons, from 3 to 5 p.m.
For more information on both programs, call Emily van Lidth de Jeude 604-947-9563 or see http://rickshawunschooling.blogspot.ca/p/wild-art.html.
