Grades 2-4 | Native Symbols | Victoria Nevarez
By discussing Native American symbols of the past and present, we will explore symbols that represent our society today.

Projects include creating a winter count calendar, making a playable flute and crafting beautiful beadwork worn by men and women.
Grades 2-4 | Puzzling Masterpiece | Debbie Elledge
Triangles, circles and squares, oh my! What will we do with them? Every project will be like solving a puzzle. What kind of line shows motion, calm or tension? Do certain colors make us feel different? Amazing creations such as collage, a feathered mobile and a shadow box will be taken home at the end of the week.
Grades 5-6 | Vibez and Verses | Candace Liger
Dance vibez and verses is a movement- and performance-based program showcasing Dancehall and Afrobeat styles, originating in Jamaica and West African, and infusing spoken word for a full-body creative experience.
