As human beings, we live in two worlds: the outer world and the inner one. We couldn’t agree more with Sir Ken Robinson, who writes about our ability to know the world around us only through the world within us, through the senses by which we perceive it and the ideas by which we make sense of it. Our lives are formed by the constant interaction and interplay between these two worlds, each affecting how we see and act in the other.
“Inside Outside” is dedicated to exploring in simple and playful ways the outer and the inner worlds of our bodies. We ask questions about what we are made of, what organs as well as feelings live in us, what we can perceive through our senses, and how we relate to our bodies through imagination. We learn how every body has a lot in common with each other, and at the same time how everybody is unique. We work with different materials and explore various techniques, such as drawing, sculpting, painting, sensing, sounding, printing, making collage, moving, shadow tracing, as well as some basic meditative practices of paying attention. The class aims to raise self-awareness, curiosity, and appreciation of the body. Every child is unique and valuable. Let’s celebrate each other!
