Imaginative Play Workshop

In this six-week workshop, parents or caregivers will learn best practices for guiding their young child or children (ages 4 to 8) into the world of the imagination through a process the instructor calls “Story Making.” Encouraging imagination is the focus of this class, which will include learning how to create rituals for setting up imaginary play, guiding children through the process of creating characters and a plot, and acting out their story, often with creative movement and sound. The process culminates in a story that is the child’s imaginative creation. The course is designed to foster that wonderful sense of loving connection that happens when adults and children play together creatively. “These are the magical years that give young children the confidence in themselves to be creative,” Sara explained. The class is offered via Zoom on Wednesdays from 4-5pm. Class meets 9/22 – 10/27. Families can register as one student. Class fee is $55.
