    Designed for 10-13 year olds, Forest Seminar is a five-week-long classics-based enrichment program, held outdoors in Prospect Park. On Tuesdays and Fridays from 3:15 to 5:15 pm, and Saturdays from 1-5 pm, inquisitive young persons will encounter canonical texts, artworks, natural phenomena, and Latin. They will explore their world and nature through thoughtful discussion and observation, and will articulate their unique perspective through written responses, hands-on creations, maps, and math.

    Led by Harvard Ph.D. and Bard Professor Annie Seaton, and anthropologist/artist Finn West, Forest Scholars will meet the greats: Plato, Shakespeare, Frederick Douglass, Emily Dickinson, Ralph Ellison. Forest Scholars will acquire a basic reading knowledge of simple Latin passages,* make cyanotypes using the sun, and much more.
