If we stop and reflect for just a moment, it is easy to see patterns all around us. Building on previous explorations, students in this camp will take to the great outdoors for inspiration. As a class, we’ll visit neighbouring Jericho beach, examining the patterns in leaves, flowers, tree bark, pebbles, and shells. Where the ocean hugs the shore, campers will collect distinguished-looking pebbles that they’ll later insert into a clay wall sculpture. Alongside this, Christianne will lead the group in literary deep dive, with the help of world renowned artist Andy Goldsworthy. Using his incredibly captivating collection of photographs, as well as short documentary excerpts, children will leap into action! We’ll pick the perfect spot outdoors, gather a comprehensive natural painter's palette and get to work creating a mandala that will literally stop people in their tracks. Goldsworthy’s pieces were always meant to be impermanent -- we’ll give our preschoolers a nudge in the right direction by selecting our favourite treasures to bring back to the Lyceum to create a one-of-a-kind textured canvas print.
