Elements At Home
Self directed curriculum with guidance from the Compass Arts team
October 5 to December 21
Final share/gallery display Saturday, January 9 (weather/covid permitting)
In response to the complex and difficult limitations imposed by coronavirus we at Compass Arts Creativity Project have embarked on a project to supplement our community's educational and arts instruction needs in a way that makes learning safe and inspiring in these uncertain times. Enter Elements At Home, a distance learning experience for children ages 3-6 and their families.
The Elements At Home course offering will give children the chance to dive deep into all of the early childhood developmental learning standards, including: personal & social, language/literacy, math & science, physical development, and creative expression. Through provocations and project-based learning, our very own Compass Arts teaching team has developed a custom made curriculum that is especially designed to empower parents and children to take charge of the learning process in their homes. Elements At Home will provide families with weekly check-ins, written instructions, resources, virtual content, and art packs that will serve as a catalyst to this fall's theme of discovering our identities.
This fall's curriculum specifically focuses on cultivating the wellness of our children's social and emotional development while inspiring their imaginations and sparking their creativity. Through stories, songs, and art projects we will explore what is at the very core of human identity. Together we will explore who we are as individuals and who we are within the context of our families and our community as we construct, dance, paint, sing, write, act and play together.
Drawing from the work of world-renowned artists as well as beloved local artists right here in Beacon, each week our staff will provide you with an art pack containing various materials, written instructions, and tools that will be paired with video experiences. Additionally, we hope to host an outdoor community art gallery event at the finale of the series which will showcase the work created over these 12 weeks and provide an opportunity to connect in person, even if from a distance.
Rate includes: art packs, weekly videos, virtual check-ins, written instructions, and book and media resources. Add on up to 3 additional art packs for additional siblings or pod members. There is also the option to have your Art Packs delivered to your door each week.
