The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched, they are felt with the heart.

A magical little novella, 'The Little Prince' by Antoine de Saint-Exupery  explores the world of the boy prince and his tiny planet. It is a beautiful, mysterious book filled with winsome illustrations and has been translated into more than 250 languages and dialects.

During our time together we will read this book in class, explore some beautiful philosophical questions -  and illustrate with wonder the little prince's universe in various, poetic mixed media projects. 

Just imagine! ...We will conjure it all in this magical camp!

  • creating his planets with paper mache
  • painting a large scale (24 x 18) acrylic portrait of the little prince  with vivid Kroma acrylic paints 
  • penning a Princely poem, creating 'little prince' cards to send to our very own 'rose' 'pilot' and 'fox' by mail (stamps included!)
  • constructing a miniature diorama to get acquainted with the butterflies
  • assembling our own mobile adding a favourite and beloved quote from the book each day - with our own creative vision ~ little planes?  tiny planets?
  • working on a collaborative sculpture of the Balboa plant - adding our own 'beautiful thoughts' to one and dumping our 'unnattractive thoughts in little envelopes on the other'  (taking care daily of the weeds)
  • creating our very own vision of an '8th planet/asteroid' which is a symbol of very own unique spirit 
  • message in a glass bottle - a favourite quote and image inspired by the little prince - sealed with wax to release on a little journey across the sea

... all in creative tribute to the tender little prince and his lovely rose.
