The Harlem Renaissance, Part I

February 15th - March 22

Thursdays, 9-11 am, ages 10-13

5 weeks, $82

This class will focus on the African American musicians, writers, artists,
and leaders from Harlem, NYC in the 1920's. Through the study of the icons
from that time, and through our own artistic expression, we'll draw
sociological and artistic connections between the Harlem Renaissance and
modern day culture. The class may culminate in a day trip to Harlem, NYC
in the spring. Part II will continue on April 5th, after spring break, based on interest.

International Trip Planning

February 15th - March 22

Thursdays, 1-3 pm, ages 10-13

5 weeks, $82

Participants will learn how to research a low-budget, culturally-immersive,
international adventure. Choosing a country of interest to them, young
people will plan a mock world travel experience using a variety of online
resources, travel-hacking tips, and guide books. We will discuss
social-conscious tourism and global literacy. Taught by a seasoned
worldschooling mom and teacher who has ventured through several continents
with her kids on the cheap.

 

Group Learning through Card Games 

February 15th - March 22

Thursdays, 1-3 pm, ages 10-13
