A few spots remain for Sunday's Yoga in the greenhouse. This is a great time to join us as a member and help support Philly's parks while getting great perks like free yoga classes and more! http://bit.ly/2qqhCKK

    This Greenhouse Yoga Series Will Make You Forget It's Winter
    Doing yoga surrounded by greenery - even during winter - IS possible. This is a magical time of year for many reasons (Santa, presents, and the like) but it's especially magical because the Fairmount Park Conservancy is bringing back their annual plant-filled yoga series, which kicks off on Sunday, December 17th, in West Fairmount Park's Horticulture Center.

Using advanced digital imaging technology, an incredible map of the world that was created in 1587 can now be viewed in its entirety. http://bit.ly/2j8miTS

    Bizarre, Enormous 16th-Century Map Assembled for First Time
    This colorful and intricately detailed map from 1587 is more than nine feet by nine feet when fully assembled. For the last 430 years, its 60 individual sheets were bound together as an atlas, but now they have finally been put together-digitally-to reveal a complete picture of the world as it was understood at the time.

    Hygge: One word on how to embrace winter
    By Ms. Shayna E Brouker (IMCOM)February 2, 2015 I hated winter. Just over a year ago this writer hailing from the perpetually sunny South for most of her adult life moved from San Antonio, Texas, to Wiesbaden in the dead of winter. I arrived on a glum, typically German Tuesday morning, the sky awash with low, heavy clouds.

"Why don't I see myself in the art?" Grade school students can ask some pretty tough questions. We may not have all the answers, but we can start by making them feel comfortable raising sensitive issues. We want students to know that art is for everyone. Our Pre-K–8 education program helps make students of all backgrounds feel welcome by incorporating racially and ethnically inclusive teaching strategies. Our program also helps build visual literacy skills so that students may better interpret media within our image-saturated culture. Will you help us continue our work in art education?
