The Water Age Children’s Art & Writing Workshops

The water you drink has been through the bladder of a Tyrannosaurus Rex. The water on Earth is 4.4 billion years old and came here from outer space. The octopus has three hearts and its eyes can look in two separate directions. What can we find out about water and aquatic flora and fauna? What imaginative ideas can we have about living with more water?

A book for teachers, artists, and writers working with children aged 8-11. Workshops include drawing and painting waterscapes, building waterscapes in the classroom, making models for water living, creating simple films, developing a story about a future watery world, performing and recording a story, creating an exhibition or broadcast, or turning a story into a book.
