#EarthDay #ArtsLearningAtHome with YAMA artist Veronica Robles

We have to be respectful to mother nature because provides the essentials to live on the earth. Happy #earthday #mothernature

I am producing a series of videos to teach a ritual dance to request permission to Mother Earth 🌍 to live and work on it. The dance is performed to the 4 cardinal points and represents the 4 elements offered by nature that are essential to live in the earth. A great activity for all ages and to learn with the whole family. It is very simple.

Please pass this message along to anyone in your networks you think would be interested. Thanks for helping to get the word out!
A truly inspiring project by YAMA artist Shaw Pong Liu
Thought you would like to see this. Great session at the Kevin O'Grady School today!
We've got 2 AWESOME family events happening for New Year's Eve. Check them both out: https://dnb.ticketbud.com/woburnnye1 https://dnb.ticketbud.com/woburnnye2
Big day today (Thursday) at the Brookwood School in Manchester. We performed our Woman Who Outshone the Sun, and then presented 4 workshops for the 4th & 5th grades. We designed and prepped 80 masks for this program! 4th grade made Greek Satyr Chorus masks and 5th grade made Japanese masks. Each workshop was only 45 minutes long. Go to my FB wall and see how well these students did today!
Good morning, Young Audiences! I hope you like my new video, great for teaching early literacy (and days of the week, and healthy eating) through music!
