The Circular Calendar - with Jessica Howard

The Circular Calendar

Thursday, December 27, 2007 1:00-4:00pm

Artist and Educator, Jessica Howard began making circular calendars many years ago, to show the children at Hiland Hall School that the year is actually round, that seasons of the year have definite relationships with each other. In the circular calendar you can see the solstices crossing the diameter with each other and you notice the important days in each. People of many cultures have used the circular calendar to show the cycles and rhythms of the year and it offers us a different view of time passing. We started the tradition of round calendars at Pompanuck a few years ago when we recognized that the blue prints of our Round House reflected the radial nature of the circular calendar. We love to look back at past years and see what has happened in 1/365th of the Pompanuck pie.

Please join us for this day of looking differently at a year of time.

The tuition for this workshop is $25, which includes materials and refreshemnts. You will leave with your own 2008 circular calendar and have fun with this creative play on time. Also, please visit www.hilandhallschool.org
