Abbey has developed over 100 of her own original characters, she has at least 6 animated series ideas in planning starring her own characters and stories, with social/emotional lessons to help kids gain an understanding of their own unique social/emotional and family-dynamic challenges interwoven within. Her primary project at this time is continuing work on an Animatic (Animated Story Board) fo her main cartoon series in planning “The12YearMind.” Abbey is excited to now be sharing her unique life experiences and passion with other children, tweens and teens — by offering beginning Character Design and Tablet Animation classes, and a Creative Kids Growth-Mindset Peer-Mentoring program (also available though Homeschooling Support Meetup).

Come join us for friendship, fun, fresh air and a little exercise and education - with other unschooling & homeschooling families living in and around Riverside County. Please read all the details before RSVP’ing for the Meetup. Thank you. At this Meetup we have the amazing opportunity to take a fun and educational nature walk at one of the State Parks in the beautiful mountain town of Idyllwild, CA. Our nature guide will be Peter Kindfield, a nature lover and educator who offers organic, child-led, interest-driven education through nature based programs. Please visit his website @ www.hilltopeducation.com for his credentials, more about his special approach to education, and available programs in and around Idyllwild, CA. We will start off by taking an easy guided hike (1hr or less - marked trials with flat to gentle inclines), then visit the Nature Center, and finally, head for the picnic tables to have our lunch (bring a sack lunch or cooler with food and drink for your family). After the walk, during or after lunch, my daughter Abbey who is a digital character artist, animated series creator/writer, animal and nature lover, will be drawing character art on paper or with chalk on concrete (where available). Join her, ask questions, and show off your own artistic expression while creating your own art-in-nature! (Please bring your own drawing supplies if you would like to join in!) Dress for weather or wear layers, bring a sack lunch or cooler for after our walk (to be kept in car during walk), water, sun screen, and any other supplies you need for an easy hike and day outside. NOTE: The trails are fairly easy and well marked - however, there can be steep inclines and wild animals just off the trails. Children should have parental supervision at all times. There is a fee for use of the Nature Center Park and all it offers; walking trails, picnic benches, nice restrooms, and of course the Nature Center, which is like a mini Natural History Museum for the local area. $4 for adults and $3 for children, pay after you park, cashier is inside the Nature Center. Do you have a local or favorite park to suggest for our next Park Day? Could you host your own Park Day?
