Walk and Jot

Primanry• Ages 5 to 9

July 29 to August 2 (5 mornings)

9:00 AM to 12:00 PM

One of our favourite activities to guide budding artists and writers, a “walk and jot” encourages us to note things that are, more often than not, skimmed over in the hustle and bustle of our everyday life. Each morning we’ll head out, armed with pen and paper, to take in the sights and sounds of the neighbourhood; one day we might focus on colour and another could be spent watching movement (the movement of trees, people and unexpected objects). The aim is to spend the week developing keen observation skills, teaching students how to translate what they see into something they want to say. 


Each day we’ll write or draw something that represents what we discovered, all of which will be collected in a coiled compendium of work to be taken home with pride at the end of the week. 

As with any class that contains a writing component, we want it to be accessible to even the most hesitant of creators. To this end, we provide volunteer scribe support as well as the affirmation that whatever way our campers would like to note down their thoughts, be that bullet points, paragraphs or doodles, they are always welcome at the Lyceum!
