About the Course

Children are invited to join Julie and Elsie as we explore, create, and play at the Ness Creek site. The content of this course will be determined by the interests and curiosities of the children. We will explore, observe, and create art and stories inspired by our surroundings, but most importantly allow for lots of time to play and think about our surroundings.

Huge thank you to SaskTel for sponsoring this workshop.
