April Holiday Programme
In Touch With Nature
“If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.”
— Vincent van Gogh
Nature is both all around us and deep within us. As humans, the connection with the world around us is intrinsic, and the desire to take care of the things we feel connected to is instinctual. In this April Holiday programme at Turf City, we hope to connect with nature through the medium of art.
Art can open our eyes to the intricacy and beauty of the natural world. It can simply be a pretty picture that appreciates nature for what it is, or it can be a
challenging piece expressing our complex human connection to nature.
In today’s technological world, children’s intertwinement with nature has greatly diminished, and they are separated from their beauty. We will embark on a week-long immersive experience to find our way back into nature’s arms. Throughout the week, children will have open-ended multimodal learning experiences, both inside and outside the school, to marvel and soak up the beauty of nature. They will have the opportunity to work with materials provided by and inspired by nature. We hope that children can learn, feel, and discover numerous things by being one with nature.
