Coyote Kids Tent
Coyote is a teacher of hidden wisdom with a sense of humor, so the message of the coyote spirit animal may paradoxically appear in the form of a joke or trickery. The Spirit of the Coyote may remind you to not take things too seriously and bring more balance between wisdom and playfulness.

Join Kara & Allie as they take you on a yoga adventure through their new book “Love Tribe Vibes"!!
Together we will move through kid friendly poses and breathing exercises while going on a journey where anything is possible when guided with an open heart. Children will develop their own understanding of what it means to live life with an open heart and how to spread Love Tribe Vibes in their own special way.
Class will end with kids having the opportunity of creating their own illustration on how to spread Love Tribe Vibes. Pics will be hung up around the OHYA festival grounds for all to see and feel!
All participants will receive a FREE Love Tribe bracelet! Anyone who wishes to purchase the "Love Tribe Vibes" book will receive a personalized signed copy that day.
“Now put on your Love Tribe Bracelet and be on your way...Love Tribe Warrior saves the day"!
Hope to see you there!
Kids Art! Upcycled Creatures
with Becca Mitchell, Soule Golden & Alison Moncrief Bromage !
We are up cycling and creating creatures! We have searched and chosen super fun materials from EcoWorks in New Haven such as wood scraps, corks, buttons, and wire, as well as glue and duct tape to create and transform these items into works of art.
Come down and build!
Mix together clay, wildflower seeds, and potting soil into a fun shape to make a wildflower “burst!” A fun project for all ages, these little works of art can be tossed anywhere that needs some joy and color.
Create a personal message on a peace flag with writing, drawing, or screen printing and hang it with others to create a collaborative work of art. Join poet Alison Moncreif and costume designer and artist Soule Golden, who will help get your creative juices flowing.
Spend some quality time slowing down and looking closely at a work of art! Join museum educator Jaime Ursic (Yale Center for British Art) for informal conversations about art.
