After School Art, Science, Yoga

The Phil Dejana Learning Center & Outdoor Classroom

Afternoon classes for children ages 3 through 10 foster lifelong connections between art, wellness, and the natural environment.

ART
Explore painting, clay sculpting and collage, inspired by the Preserve’s abundant natural resources – rocks, shells, seeds, leaves, and sticks – collected onsite by the children for their creative projects. Art classes meet in the Phil Dejana Learning Center & Outdoor Classroom.

YOGA
Discover basic yoga postures, meditation, and breathing techniques in a fun and imaginative environment. Practice will advance based on the children’s abilities and interests. Yoga meets in Castle Gould’s Great Hall.

Art and Yoga classes are led by Lisa Cusano, an experienced educator and certified children’s yoga instructor, who holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts. “Teacher Lisa” has designed each class to expand opportunities for children as they grow and learn in a fun, natural and nurturing environment.

SCIENCE IN NATURE
These STEAM-based programs provide curricular enrichment, drawing on the varied natural resources of the Preserve. Classes are led by the Conservancy’s Education Manager, Tracy Strianese. She holds a BA in Education and has extensive experience teaching in schools and museums.
