at Radici Studios in San Francisco
Come explore with a child in your life (daughter, son, grandchild, niece, nephew, friend, etc.) in these unique classes designed for you to work creatively together. Spending time with kids helps them build confidence and feel more connected, while lessening challenging behavior. These workshops are designed to illicit sharing, connection and creativity. All workshops are for children ages 5-9 and a caregiver, with all materials provided. No art experience necessary, just a desire to connect, spend focused time together, and have fun!
Are you looking for a safe space to have conversations about skin color with your child? In this workshop we will learn how to mix the colors that make up our physical appearance while talking about inclusion, acceptance and how to stand up for one another. Kids and adults will walk away with a self portrait and a better understanding of how to talk about the beautiful rainbow of humans in the world.

My Story of Me
Has a child in your life always wanted to be the protagonist in their own adventure? Come join us in this workshop and help them write and illustrate their very own book.

Map of Meaning
During this workshop we will create 3-D maps of events and experiences that are part of your shared story. Using photos, collage, drawing, painting and mixed media we will explore places that have had an important impact in your lives, and create a unique map that helps you share these stories with one another.
Next Date TBD
In this workshop children and caregivers will create life-sized paintings of themselves. Having conversations about the amazing things our bodies can do can can infuse love, appreciation and confidence in a topic that can feel complicated. Come celebrate our unique and colorful bodies!

The Way it Was
In this workshop, go back in time to when you were the child’s age and share with them a story that involves an important place (your room growing up, your school, your backyard, a place you visited, etc). Based on these conversations, the child will recreate the place through their own eyes in a shoe-box diorama. As we create, we’ll talk about what makes places feel special, safe, welcoming, and important to each of us.
Next Date TBD
