In this interactive presentation by Sylvia Kind, participants are invited to engage with the processes, emergences, and insights from a project focusing on birds that has taken place over the last three years in the Capilano University Children’s Centre and Studio with children ages 2-5 years. We will share moments and trajectories from the project while emphasizing children’s expressive and artistic languages and diverse ways of working with and through ideas. Participants will be invited to try out some of the children’s processes and experiment with artistic ways of knowing as we consider the richness and complexity of engaging in project work with children. There will be a focus on enlivening and engaging with the multiple creative and artistic languages, or hundred languages, that are part of children’s learning and experimentation processes and explore some of the potential of working with the possibilities and propositions of materials.


About Sylvia Kind

Sylvia Kind, Ph.D. is a faculty instructor in Early Childhood Education at Capilano University and an atelierista at the Capilano University Children’s Centre. She has a particular affinity for the pedagogical values and approach of the schools in Reggio Emilia and their commitment to relational and artistic ways of knowing.

Her work is motivated by an interest in young children’s studio practices, their lively material improvisations and collective experimentations, and in developing understandings of studio research in early childhood contexts.
