Our Busy Hands program covers what we think of as inner and outer work. Through a variety of learning modes and content areas, we offer children a chance to keep head, heart, and hands busy. Specialists in the greater community are often brought in to share their unique talents. Sample areas of guided study include: painting, social skills, carving, cooperative games, music, yoga, martial arts, sewing, cooking, conflict resolution, weaving, pottery, and wood working. Busy Hands subjects are generally taught in 8 week blocks. Each day children enjoy classes in two different content areas. For example, one day might consist of wood working and painting while another includes conflict resolution and martial arts. In addition to guided study, Busy Hands offers a 1.5 hour-long social lunch block and nature free play.

Fall Block II : NOV. 6 ~ DEC. 20

MONDAY

WEDNESDAY

Shakespearean Drama 

Students will have an opportunity to become closely acquainted with selected works of William Shakespeare through dramatic reading, staging, character study, and plot analysis.  While reading dialogue and acting out scenes, students will also learn the basic elements of theater.

 

Sewing Basics 

In this session of Busy Hands students will learn basic hand sewing. How to thread and knot will be taught as well as basic stitches such as backstich, basting, running, stem, blanket and catch.  After mastering these techniques, students will have a number of projects to choose from, many of which will make great gifts for family and friends! Shh! Keeping these surprise gifts a secret between the instructor and kids!

 

Pottery 

The versatility of clay as a medium provides the perfect proving ground for an active imagination.  Through the construction of a primitive kiln, screen filtering of clay, decorating and glazing, as well as applying wax resistant techniques, students will discover the elements of pottery as they see their individual projects grow from concept to physical object.

Herbal Journaling  

Join World House to learn about herbs and their uses!  Our children will focus on one plant each week.  They will be keeping a journal to keep track of what they have learned, and will be creating beautiful art pieces/sprays/salves etc. to embrace and celebrate these beautiful life-giving plants. *There is an additional $5 fee for this class, to provide journals.
