Yoga, Stories and Art: Ages 2-4
with Kristin Baxter
Fridays, April 24-May 29 | 9:30-10:30 a.m.
This class is designed for children ages 2-4 and their adult caregivers. Each class focuses on a theme such as "animals and nature," "family and friends," "sun and moon," and "quiet, warm, and cozy" and begins with simple, fun yoga movements. The teaching-artist reads a children's picture book and engages children in describing the pictures, predicting what might happen next, and guessing what certain words mean. Each class concludes with process-focused artmaking experiences, all related to the day's theme.
Kristin Baxter has taught art to children, teens, and adults for 20+ years in schools, museums, and community organizations. She is now Associate Professor of Art and Director of the Art Education Program at Moravian College where she teaches courses in art education curriculum design, artistic development of children and adolescents, and a first-year writing seminar called yoga, art, and writing. She earned her Yoga Teacher Certification (RYT-200) from the Yoga Loft, in Bethlehem and completed additional training in trauma-informed yoga teaching strategies from Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, in Stockbridge, MA. Most recently she completed trainings in mindfulness from Mindful Schools.
