At Auttie World, children are viewed as unique and gifted individuals. We feel each child’s development is best supported through an emergent & creative Holistic curriculum. Our Summer Holistic Art sessions is full of craft materials and garden activities, to encourage imagination. Each instructor helps to promote a positive self-image by encouraging the children to try new activities & challenges. We work with various community centers in KY, IN, and TN to provide FREE Holistic and Alternative Art Sessions in person or virtually due to ongoing COVID 19 Pandemic.
GREEN KIDS (Garden or Green Earth Thinkers)
Researchers find activities like gardening, horticulture, holistic (body, mind, and spirit) can improve mental health and contribute to a healthy weight. The increased physical activity reduces stress and increases happiness for GREEN KIDS! You also build better eating habits for your entire family and generations to come, when grow your own vegetables. With benefits like this, why are we not seeing more adults and children interested in gardening? For starters, we have to go back and begin with the young. Cultivating children’s interest in gardening, art, and the environment at a very young age, shows that as adults they continue to artwork, be supporters of sustainability GREEN KIDS and the "Garden" or "Green Earth" thinker. Children’s gardens should be a place of fun and inhibition so they can be free to explore and learn as they grow-up.
