After-School Kids Breath in Motion
Moon and Thunder is Indigo Nature Art's sister program, and incorporates wellness into everyday play and being for kids of all ages.
Breath in Motion after school program offers kids 6-12 years-old a time to experience the power of breath, along with fun movement games. Kids gain skills such as listening to their bodies and strengthening awareness. They will also learn postures to support strength, focus and balance.
The weekly practice inspires self confidence and academic concentration. Some of the activities are based on the Yoga Calm principals — stillness, listening, grounding, strength and community. For kids 6-12.
Indigo Nature Arts provides programming that takes place amongst some of Philadelphia's enchanting and exceptional natural landscapes. Children unplug from the technological and competitive world, and engage within natural environments.
Indigo Nature Arts encourages the freedom to discover through play and creativity. In turn, children naturally develop valuable skills at their own pace.
Art and photography classes, yearly summer camps, and winter programming offer opportunities for children to "be" in nature, and truly experience the transformation of the seasons.
Children are supported to visually and physically express themselves. Thoughtful guidance and love, nurtures growth and healthy development.
Documenting the rich experiences the children have over the years tells the story of Indigo Nature Arts. Please take a moment and browse the gallery by clicking the image above.
Listening to children tell their stories helps them to feel at ease. Children are eager to share their experiences, even the imaginary ones! Developing patience to listen to one another leads to tolerance. It helps children to discover more about their peers and friendships develop.
When the mind, body and spirit are fully engaged in physical activity and hands-on exploration, the magic of invention happens. Wonder and surprise helps the child to blossom.
"Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you." - Frank Lloyd Wright
Indigo Summer Camp is in its 8th year serving families with children between the ages of 5-12 years-old.
Camp is held primarily outdoors in a forest setting, and offers
remarkable and diverse landscapes for exploration. Professional, loving, intuitive teachers and counselors offer respectful care and knowledge.
Indigo Nature Arts camp runs on the belief that summertime is for play-time and down-time. We create a community environment where the children enjoy simple, yet memorable adventures, such as scouting for frogs, toads and snails, investigating insects in the meadow, exploring and playing at the creek, and hiking the trails in the Andorra Natural Area.
Child-led play, minute-morning-mediation, mini-healing herbs lessons, handwork, imaginative nature-based art projects, painting, drawing, and natural science, weave together practical programming.
