INQUIRY BASED exploration.
UNIQUE MATERIALS & TECHNIQUES.
CONNECTED TO THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT.
Linda focuses on providing the natural inspiration for outdoor art experiences to our youngest learners. Through small, exploration-based workshops, children discover art through natural examples of colour, line, texture and shape.
Linda practices the Reggio Emilia Approach and has worked with early childhood centers, preschools, kindergartens and Montessori schools.
Projects like weaving with found nature, vegetable dyeing and sculpture building with clay and sensory doughs challenge young children and provide opportunities for unique discussion and skill development. These workshops can be tailored to suit your specific needs; they could be the start of large natural art project, a great way to explore seasonal changes, or simply help promote more natural and open-ended outdoor play.
