Family Program

May 20, 2017 10-11:30 am

Encouraging the creative spark in all of us, we offer art and nature program for families each month for children ages 5 to 12 and their adult companions. The program will focus on exploring, learning, and creating art together.

Participants in the May 20 session can get a taste of the process of bird carving with fun and easy to craft materials. We will follow the steps that experienced carvers use, including laying out patterns, creating blanks, and shaping a duck through different cuts. With floral foam instead of wood, attendees will model a duck of their choice. We will also visit the carving workshop to see how carving is done with wood.
