Join Katherine Lyons for an engaging and enlightening workshop that delves into the intricate dynamics between human and animal families.

Guided by the expertise of Wolf Trap Master Teaching Artist and accomplished actor Katherine Lyons, this workshop promises an immersive story dramatization experience.

These narratives beautifully explore the profound interdependence shared between humans and nature. Through the lens of these tales, participants will cultivate a deepened sense of respect and admiration for our planet and its diverse inhabitants.

The workshop encompasses a range of engaging activities designed to enrich your experience. From dynamic body movements and rhythmic chants to skillfully matched instruments and thoughtfully chosen props that accentuate each character’s essence. Participants will delve into concepts of ordinal numbers, counting, sequencing, and collaborative problem-solving.
