WOYC 2020

    Would love to share ideas in regard to celebrating WOYC 2020 with our families remotely. I would love to think that we will all be back open, but highly doubt it. Even though it's hard to plan for the future, as things are changing day to day, thought it would be fun to put our creative minds together on a week that has always been a highlight for our children, families and teachers.
    Sending peace, love and health to all. ❤️

    Hello Monica,

    One of the many events cancelled in April was our Young at Art Celebration of local young children in our county sharing artwork and displaying it a the local library. This was to be up throughout April to celebrate Month of the Young Child.

    The artwork was collected and each teacher is now promoting a Virtual Art Fair on Artsy Thursday (April 16) with photos and video of children's work displayed at the teacher's home. They are going to pair it with some instrumental music, perhaps something from Peter and the Wolf, or from Disney's Fantasia. We might even see if we can connect the individual art fairs through technology somehow and have Watch Parties.

    Be well,

    Chris
