a multi-arts program full of connection, play, and joy for children aged 5-9
Sarah Posthuma, our facilitator, engages children in a process of self-discovery through the arts: she supports them to bring their ideas and stories to life and connect with other kids in the process of creating together. NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE NEEDED!
Half of each class is outdoors and focussed on creative movement, whether in sunshine or in rain! The other half of class is indoors, where children will enjoy a healthy snack, then participate in process-based arts activities (visual art, storytelling, music-making, and drama).
Each six-week session costs $50 – fully subsidized spots are available. Contact us for more details.
When: Saturdays, May 7 – June 18, from 9:30-11:30
Where: Church of the Ascension, 253 Echo Drive
COVID-19 protocols in place. Masks must be worn indoors (except when eating) and we will ensure adequate physical distancing is maintained. Program dates and /or format may be adapted to meet changing public health requirements.
Our staff and volunteers are fully vaccinated (at least 2 shots +14 days). However, vaccinations are not required for children.
Church of the Ascension believes that creativity and play are good for the soul but Rising Up does not include any religious teaching or formation. If you are interested in those topics, please see Growing in Faith or contact our priest, Rhonda.
Rising Up is made possible through a generous grant from the Anglican Foundation of Canada.
