these are nature based....
Picture from residency at the Mountain Road School in New Lebanon, New York. Work included participation with parents and extended community members.
Luz Elena ... inspired my fourth grade class to explore creative outlets they seemed unaware of before … they became empowered. The final performance was beautiful. The children were extremely proud.
Luz Elena has a calm, joyful presence. My students LOVED having the chance to choose their own characters (from fiery lightning to the serene moon). Luz Elena also allowed the children to help craft many details of the production. Her approach gives children the chance to express themselves and feel ownership and investment in the end product.
I think that the spirit of nature was really connecting with me.
Thank you for ... your spirit filled presence and for ... launching us off to a good start this year. The children all loved being a part of your program. We hope you will come back!
