Earth Arts Homeschool Program
The Earth Arts Homeschool Program offers homeschooled children an opportunity to be a part of a community that emphasizes learning through a connection to the natural world and socialization through play.
Through observation, games, forest walks, crafts, and a welcoming community, children will increase their awareness of the woods and the place they live.
Stories, Art and Wisdom
People from all over the world have traditions and stories that are filled with wisdom. The power of storytelling will come alive daily to create community this week.
Sisters of the Forest and Mama Bear Circle
Sisters of the Forest is a year-long journey of nature-based communal learning and exploration for young women ages 8-11 It is designed to facilitate wandering and exploration of inner and outer landscapes, and to deepen our connection to ourselves, each other, and the land within the container of a community.
The Mama Bear Circle is a gathering of mothers, aunties, and grandmothers that meets towards the end of the day to share in the connection with the land, enjoy each other’s company, and welcome the young women and their stories back from their adventures.
Rite of Passage Ritual
A Rite of Passage is a ceremony that acknowledges a significant transition that happens around the age of 7, as a child starts to gain more competencies and becomes ready to take on more responsibilities and privileges.
At Earth Arts we work with families to guide you through the process of designing & facilitating a Rite of Passage Ceremony for your child.
