MASTER ARTISTS & WORKSHOPS
Air & Light Passageway
Children will enter a long passageway, which they will transform into a large stained glass environment. They will respond to the presence of daylight/sunlight intersecting the interior with cast shadows and natural and applied color, while also punctuating the space with a collection of found and moving objects catching the breezes flowing through the structure.
Greetings from Nature
Collage is a fun and easy way to make art. Using natural materials you can create your own greeting card and share with others when you send it off in the mail. Brighten someone else’s day with a special message inside.

Alabama Waldorf School
Alabama Waldorf School (formerly The Redmont School) is committed to providing a rich and balanced educational experience which actively engages the whole child. Waldorf education is grounded in strong academics, enlivened by the arts, and made concrete by practical experience. Our faculty draws on the child’s innate sense of wonder and thirst for meaningful values to nurture a reverence for life and an eagerness to learn. We honor each child’s individuality while building responsible citizenship within a multicultural and developmentally appropriate curriculum.
Our school serves children ages 2 ½ through the 8th grade. We offer year round enrollment and are accepting applications for our 2010 – 2011 academic year. For more information or to schedule a tour please contact Opal South at 205-592-0541 or visit our website at www.alabamawaldorf.org.

McDowell Environmental Center
At the McDowell Environmental Center, our curriculum is more than a walk in the woods although it may start there. We believe experiential classes help students to better understand the natural world, leading them to a sense of responsibility for it. This is a place where a science class, standing in a cool, running stream, studies and learns about the creatures that live there. This is a place where students can see and feel exactly what they are being taught, all at the same time. This is a place where students learn to be fascinated by a shiny beetle when yesterday they were afraid of it. This is the essence of the McDowell Environmental Center.
HOPE Outreach Ensemble, Birmingham Ballet - will be performing on the Crescent Stage, Saturday, from 4:00-4:20
Birmingham Ballet’s H.O.P.E. program enriches the community through outreach performances by student ensembles in a variety of settings and events. Our goal is to bring dance into the community and spread the joy of dancing to audiences all around. Specialized training and a passion for excellence make H.O.P.E performances a treat to watch. The children who participate in H.O.P.E are enriched through each and every performance, not only as growing artists but also as people. The joy of generosity and outreach comes out in each step!
