The Living Arts Workshop & Lecture with Cynthia Aldinger | November 2nd & 3rd

November 2, 2018 - November 3, 2018

The LifeWays training supports caregivers in the creation of home-like childcare environments that provide the comfort, security, and activities found in a healthy home.

Lifeways invites parents, caregivers, grandparents, and teachers to regain their joy and preserve the playful spirit of childhood for the benefit of children in their care. Tucson Waldorf School will be hosting Cynthia Aldinger, founder and executive director of LifeWays North America, for a Friday evening presentation and Saturday workshop. A mother and grandmother, Cynthia is the author of Life is the Curriculum and co-author of Home Away from Home: Life Ways Care of Children and Families.

The Living Arts Workshop is a hands-on spirit-lifting workshop with a practical-life approach to bring meaning and joy to the mundane when working with young children as well as simple ways to nurture, soothe, and care for children and ourselves. The Living Arts encompass social, creative, domestic, and nurturing realms. The workshop will include a simple seasonal craft project, music, games, photo essay on The Living Arts, as well as a social exchange with Q & A regarding the day’s activities. This introduction to The Living Arts is a prelude to a future LifeWays Early Childhood Certificate Training which will be held in Tucson.
