Literature and the Arts with Susan Lepple

Join Susan for a creative approach to exploring children's literature. Through the use of fine art, movement, assemblage, drama, and music, students will experience and explore quality children's literature that is silly, thought-provoking, creative, and caring. Students may create kinetic sculptures and circus animals like Alexander Calder, create and perform puppet shows, move, groove, and draw to musical beats, make hats like Madame Chapeau, or be inspired to expressively paint like the reptiles in Art and Max. Each session includes 6 new books and 6 new creative experiences. 

Radiate is very excited that Susan is extending her very popular program to Richmond. Susan has taught Literature and the Arts, with a waiting list, in Hinesburg for several years. Feel free to email Susan any questions.
