The creativity in Lynne and her Kids Arts program is aligned with our farm. An example of one of her programs was called The Basics:
Each week they focused on a specific activity: Cooking, Sewing, Building and Growing. The cooking segment included discussions and activities around where food comes from, how we choose what we eat, and actually planning and cooking food together. The sewing/fiber arts activities included how to repair clothes that need buttons, hems, patches or “bling” and sent the youth home with the challenge of a small knitting or sewing project. They also explored how we make choices about what to wear, talking about personal style and how we present ourselves through the art of dressing every day. The third segment put gross motor skills to the test, and gave the youth basic skills in carpentry–they designed and built kitchen planter boxes which lead to the final skill set, creating a small kitchen garden for herbs and veggies.
