On Saturday, April 6th, over 200 parents attended the Parent Forum held at our Guadalupano Family Center hosted by Child Development. This month, we partnered with ElevArte Community Studio to facilitate workshops for both parents and children. The workshops “Traveling Tales” and “Imagination Doctors” focused on using art to help improve communication between parent and child.
During “Traveling Tales” students used their imagination to take a journey near and far by emphasizing the elements of stories: place, character and action. “Imagination Doctors” allowed parents to use common household or classroom objects as props in improvisational vignettes celebrating their family stories.
In addition to the workshops, parents were able to connect with valuable resources and service providers. We’d like to thank the following partners:
