Fennell explains she didn’t fully integrate the Kindness Project into her curriculum last year because she couldn’t devote a whole class to it. However, the positive feedback she has received encouraged her to make the project a more deliberate part of her curriculum. She chose January because people need a little cheering up when all the holidays are over and all that’s left is cold.
Serendipity Art School offers art making classes for both kids and adults. Fennell encourages kids from a young age to experiment with shapes, colors, textures, and more, and as they grow more artistically confident, they learn how to paint stick figures, faces, and more. In 2020, after all the holiday-focused art, her young students will begin a project on the Coral Reef to inject some brightness and fun into the dreary months in the same fashion as the Kindness Project. Serendipity offers a summer program in addition to its semester-long classes.
