Ages 8 – 12
In this workshop, we will tune in to the world around us using our different senses. Through different group exercises we will look carefully, searching for patterns in what we see and listening attentively to hear the rhythms in our surroundings. Using these observations, we will then make abstract looking-drawings and listening-sculptures containing the sights and sounds that we have found.
