In GirlPower! Be Who You Are™ workshops, we discover fun and creative ways to move and express feelings, discover strengths, make connections with other girls and explore ways to add zest and vitality in life. Regardless of the stage of prepubescence or adolescence girls are in, they need a safe place to talk and express, both through words and movement, and experiential learning. This year's theme, "Inspirational Women" explores the lives of women who have made a difference, who overcame challenges and influenced society. This full-day workshop will explore the life of Isabella Stewart Gardner, philanthropist and art lover. Includes a tour of the Isabella Gardner Museum in Boston, an urban hike through part of the iconic “Emerald Necklance”, journaling, sketching, creative movement, supplies, lunch and transportation.
