Fairies, Flowers and Furry Friends
Bring your imagination and enter our magical world. Picture fairies dancing and singing among the garden flowers while woodland creatures look on in wonder. We’ll build fairy houses, create little fairies to inhabit them, and add furry friends to complete our own special fantasyland. Our special week will end with handmade costumes and a garden tea party celebration.
Lisa Kaija received her BA in Art History at Dartmouth College and her K-6 General Education/Visual Arts teaching certification through the Upper Valley Teacher Institute. During the last thirty years, she taught all subjects in grades K-4 and some subjects in grade 5-6 in various Upper Valley public and private schools. She has trained mid-life career changers to become teachers and raised five children with her husband, Kevin. Lisa revels in teaching art. The question she dodges most often is “Are you an artist?,” since she considers herself a teacher first and an artist second, and elementary art teachers need to know a little about a lot of different art forms. She thrives on challenges and enjoys being creative with people of any age.
