Rain Forest


This workshop uses movement to illustrate rain forest concepts. Jane Gotch will teach students about various flora and fauna of the rain forest and the circular and interconnected relationships that exist between them.


The participants will explore the illustrations and characters in the book Here is the Tropical Rain Forest by Madeleine Dunphy. They will then create their own shapes based on the characters that co-exist in the rain forest.
