Designed for children aged 5-12, accompanied by an adult
* Please note: This is Day 2 of a two-day programme. The
artists' intention is that both programmes are attended for children to
get the most out of them.
Day 2 (continued from 22/3/21)
Visual artist Helen Barry and violinist Gwendolyn Masin have spent
the past months creating a programme designed for children that brings
visual art and classical music into playful partnership. Gwendolyn and
Helen believe that children can draw a path to their own inherent wisdom
if their imagination is engaged. Children can be focused and inspired
without constant need for stimulation from others - once they know how. The
programme takes children on a journey through music (from Bach to
Boulanger), art (Chagall to Van Gogh), art history, and music history.
a particular focus on communication that is reflective of the core
principles and approaches used by Visual Thinking Strategies, Gwendolyn
and Helen help deepen learning through inquiry-based teaching.
Discovering art, music, and in turn, themselves, children’s imagination
and attention is engaged, resulting in meaningful transformation. All
children aged 5-12 welcome, accompanied by an adult. Only ten places
available We will have a waiting-list. In case you’ve missed your space,
please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can let you know when we
will perform the next programme.
Please bring along: some sheets of A4 paper and a biro or a coloured marker.

Our community classes are based on a system of dāna. Dāna is the practice of cultivating generosity. At The Exhale, multiple hours of learning are given each week in the form of community classes, where the price of a class is recommended but not imposed. Those who teach these community classes volunteer their time and offer the revenue generated by it to faculty members who are in financial need during this unprecedented time in our collective history. We thank you for supporting this eco-system of giving and receiving!
