Creative Arts Open Hearts is a literacy-based class that helps children learn reading readiness skills in a fun, whole body experience.
This is a class for both adult and child to interact as playmates. Su as a creative integrated arts educator will be integrating music, movement, stories, themes, art, games, and imagination. There will be familiar songs as well as new ones. Su changes the words to old songs and stories to integrate loving, peaceful, and cooperative language. Each week has a different theme to the class. Colors, Numbers, Letters, Shapes, Trains (a continuation of shapes), Winter, Love and Friendship (on Valentine’s Day), and Diversity. Su will provide lyrics via email to participants to continue at home learning and playing.
Su brings creativity and an open heart to each class she leads. She engages each child as an individual with kindness, compassion, joy and playfulness. Her intention is to find ways through expressive creative arts to support children in their development and to help adults engage in fun connective ways.
