Important Notes: All of my classes are inclusive. Classes are suitable for the neurodiverse child. CEFR: B1-B2 and above. While this class is under Art, it can also serve as a Social Studies module as Learners will be introduced to the Japanese ancient art of flower arrangement known as Ikebana following the geographical, historical context of its development to the art form it is today. They will learn what this word means, its history as an art form that reflects Zen principles and...
Learners will expand their cultural appreciation and engage in a journey focused artistic activity that will bring joy and stress relief to their hearts.
Teacher grew up in Japan, where she learned and practiced the principles of Ikebana; later on she studied Fine Arts at the Candido Bido Academy and Crealde School of Art, has a B.A. in Psychology, a Master's Degree in Liberal Studies; her thesis was on Art & Humanities, including an Exhibit she curated for City Hall based on her work, Symbiotic Relationships; she carries Art in her DNA; and is a valued Art History teacher on our Outschool platform (see other parents' reviews).
Depending on the vase and type of arrangement Learner wishes to create (see class description above), Learner may need either a simple vase with flowers and leaves, or a Japanese vase or "suiban" (open and low) with a pin frog (kenzan) where they may want to include wood, rocks, moss, twigs, or even fruit! If this arrangement type is chosen, please make sure to have the vase and a kenzan, plus any other element Learner would like to include. You may also want to have handy the following: sheet or paper where to rest the branches and stems while working (it will protect your table surface and be easy to pick up the little pieces of stems, leaves, etc. afterwards) bowl of water where you will cut the flowers and branches under water scissors a hand towel flowers, branches, leaves, etc. water canister
Informal, throughout class and with a final review and Q&A.

Pamela Ocana, M.A.It is my passion to share the gifts of Yoga, Meditation, Art History/Humanities, Languages, Kindness & Logic in a joyful & mindful way with children of all ages, including those young at heart. I believe these areas of study help cultivate personal wellbeing, an enriched community, and ultimately, a more peaceful world.
