2016–2017 FIELD TRIP THEMES
BODY WORKS GRADES K–6
Science, art, and movement get under your skin as we uncover symmetry, explore how our insides have been "organ-ized," and fashion graceful stylish motions from teams of muscle and bones.
LIGHT + SHADOW GRADES K–6
Movement, art, and science converge in areas bright and dark as we break apart light, use painting techniques to explore shade of color, create a shadow dance, and jump, step, and turn to articulate the qualities of light and shadow.
MIXIN' IT UP GRADES K–6
From chemistry to colors to moves, we're mixing things together with outstanding results.
