Arts & Crafts

Art and Animals

Each week, a different animal is the star of our classroom. We learn fun facts and explore the wonders of these amazing creatures. Often, a live animal pays us a visit in person; other times we closely examine skeletons, taxidermy models, and habitats. Then, we get busy making art inspired by their unique characteristics. Projects, techniques and animal vary every session, but you can count on having fun, getting messy and learning something new every week. This hands-on class is as fun for the accompanying adults as it is for the kids. Class fee includes one child & one participating adult. Please register using the child’s name.
