This year, all children from 1st through 8th grade are invited to  take an adventure to Asia! Youth will be exploring culinary delights, artistic endeavors, music, historical perspectives and more!  Your children will enjoy experiencing classes with an Asian twist right here in Gualala. Sign up, it’s going to be a blast!

Classes include Japanese fish painting, or Gyotaku, block printing on textiles, making books with sun prints and calligraphy, anthropology and cultural lessons, Asian cuisine, and even some Martial Arts!

Jessica Crouch will be leading the workshop on Gyotaku and block printing. Originally used to  record and commemorate a fisherman’s catch, fish prints are created with sumi ink on paper, using a fish!  Block prints will be hand-colored on cotton fabric using natural dyes and paint brushes. Jessica lives in Nashville, Tenn.

Instructor JC Johnson will teach book binding and cyanotype.  JC has a Master of Fine Arts with a Photography Concentration and has worked as a teacher and staff photographer. She is currently Artistic Director of Culture Keeper Online Journal. She is based in Nashville, Tenn.

Local Martial Arts instructor Lini Lieberman will teach some beginning moves and routines in Karate and the Martial Arts.

With anthropologist Anne Menne, campers will re-trace the steps of Asian ancestors, working in tribes and learning about how ancient Asian people recognized and worked with the beauty, rhythm and blessings of nature. Campers will collect plant materials and create handmade paper, map the world around them, and draw, paint and sculpt using paper using origami techniques. They will have fun writing haiku, playing paper games, and creating invitations, codes and diaries. Anne Menne is an anthropologist and artist who has worked with children in the United States and Latin America for over 40 years.  She lives on the Mendocino Coast.

Every year features a new and vibrant Global Harmony adventure! Go here to see details about last year’s camp!
