Magic Garden Summer Camp highlights the process of painting. Classes are created in ways that are interactive, engaging and exciting. The process is the beauty for the young artist, not the outcome.
You will meet other Island families and those from afar, enjoy children-friendly walks in nature and create work in a peaceful, relaxing studio environment. Art illustrator quality materials are utilized for watercolor, pastel, sketching with charcoal and Lyra watercolor pencils, collage, flower petals, sunflower art, silk and sand painting, copper, wood, clay sculpture and mosaics.
Miss Lani founded and teaches our Magic Garden Summer Camp. In addition, Miss Lani is the founder and teacher of Featherstone’s young children’s Pre-School Arts Program during the week and on weekends during the school year. Her philosophy is to be “in touch” with our pre-school age children and youth as they participate in these activities in order that enjoyment is fostered.
A positive and nurturing climate is established because of the lovely quality of families we paint with and because we are present, we make time to talk individually with each child and interact respectfully with all children; each child is guided in positive peer interactions and behavior management strategies.
A natural and beautiful “order” is the result. “Mirroring” behavior that is warm and joyful characterizes Miss Lani’s teaching expertise. She believes our program is located in a place of rural Island dignity, like none other. It carries physical embodiments of the past, but also maintains in its very air a rare serenity – an other worldliness.
