The first event I attended after accepting the Headship at HCDS was the Spring Art Festival, which was held in the spring of 2011. Jama and I were blown away by the incredible art created by Harbor students. The School's mission is to nurture childhood and one way that the School accomplishes our mission is through the arts and self-expression at the earliest stages of development.
Holidays and vacations brings out the photographer in most of us, whether or not we snap family photos, scenery or have the rare opportunity to glimpse the unforeseen. Most importantly, people can feel empowered and expressive behind the lens when one captures a moment in time either as a keepsake or to share with others; human nature capturing human, animal and Mother nature.
Concurrently, for photographer and viewer, incredible photography captures provocative emotions and can take our breath away as much as a Van Gogh depicting fields of flowers painted in provocative brush strokes that reveal a tortured man. There are many venues for enjoying incredible art and nature with your children during upcoming holidays, and in the beautiful light of the Fall and winter seasons, and I encourage you to discover them through museum visits, critter and nature walks, off-season beach explorations, the murmurations of the swallows and travel excursions to view the synchronicity of whales or animal tracks on snow.
Photograph what is fascinating to the eyes! Introduce your children to the magic of photography both off and on the internet, which offers amazing photographs of life on earth and within our solar system.
Here are a few of my favorites.....
Enjoy your own explorations!
