Family Weekend: Sky Woman Creates the World

With Laura Simms and Barbara Bash

March 15 - 17, 2019

Come engage with story, movement, mark making and the great outdoors. We will listen to an ancient myth from the Seneca Nation about the power of basic goodness. By engaging with its wisdom through art, play and natural explorations we can create our world. Together families will embark on a magical journey and share in the creative space of Sky Lake.

This program is open to parents and children of all ages.

Space is limited, so please register early. Each single room has two beds. Feel free to contact us if you have questions about the rooms.
