Yes, absolutely. Our space is limited so we will be livestreaming the main session. We will be filming our session so that children around the world can also learn and be inspired by what we will be learning together from one another.

Immediately! Space is limited. We will be selecting our scholars on a rolling basis. Teachers, please apply early also. If you are a parent interested in joining us, you may be placed on a wait list unless you are speaking or engaged in a workshop.
