Let’s be honest, we have totally over sanitized the concept of play from childhood to adulthood. In this fun and interactive workshop, practitioners, educators and the curious will play with dirt, paint, glue, water, dyes and more (all dependent if we are outside or inside), as a way to re-emphasize the importance of play in activities and projects, and supporting the understanding that play requires getting ones clothes and hands a bit dirty. Play is diverse, infinite and critical to developing positive personal identity. Pig-Pen reminds us that there is room for a little messiness in our playful lives.
