Kempo Karate originates from the Shaolin Temple. This style of karate teaches basic blocks, strikes, forms, combinations, and self-defense techniques. Kempo Karate can bring confidence, discipline, and balance to students. It’s also great for crossing the midline!

$150 for an 8-week session
3rd grade and up (minimum 3, maximum 10 students)

This class will focus on painting with a question rather than a set answer. Students will explore the enjoyment of painting and move away from the stress we often feel at being unable to achieve a certain image. HVWS parent, artist, and Waldorf graduate, Natasha de Castro, will share an exploration of the interactions of color, water, and paper. Students will approach painting from the perspective of, “What images could be in there?” rather than, “I will paint THIS image.” We will explore collaborative painting and what is it to be attached to one’s own painting and what is it to continue someone else’s painting as if in a conversation of color…. The ultimate goal is to have fun and have positive and enjoyable experiences while creating.

*There will be no programs on days the school is closed.
