In April 2021, our school reopened after being closed for in-person learning for over one year. At this time in San Diego, our Covid-19 infection rates have dropped, the governor has reopened the state,  and the vaccine is available for most. Still unsure of their comfort levels with the pandemic and a little timid after such long seclusion – about half of our students decided to opt-in and come to school. For the first day, our class decided to explore the physical world and reconnect with each other in nature through the community-based art practice of “foraged land art.”
