Planting Wonder educational enrichment is designed to inspire elementary-school children. We provide unique arts integrated programs that support K-5 curriculum and nurture innate curiosity. We aim to sow the seeds of social-emotional well-being, collaborative thinking, and engagement in school.
Since 2015, we have worked with over 400 students, teachers, and families of low-performing high-poverty public schools in Los Angeles. Our goal is to increase our presence at current partner schools and develop new relationships with schools that can benefit from our efforts.
The idea that sensory discoveries ignite cognitive connections guides our art curriculum. Individual and group projects are rooted in visual art fundamentals and grade level themes, yet students are encouraged to explore concepts and experiment with materials. The result: artwork that expresses both knowledge and creative choices.
Hands-on, minds-on exploration nurtures a deeper understanding of the world around us. Students joyfully engage in open-ended learning experiences and kinetic dramatic play where the journey – not the end result – is the key. They collaborate with teachers and fellow students to question and reflect.
STEAM is Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math. Through the lens of these 21st century skills, students think about how and where they live, starting with their own communities. With boundless imagination and a focus on problem solving, they thoughtfully plan projects before building them.
"Grow Educators' Planting Wonder has been transformational in evoking creativity and caring at our school"
