Interested in all things dinosaurs, fossils and prehistory? This workshop melds a love of natural history with exploring and creating. Students craft a paleolithic world; painting, drawing and building their favorite dinosaurs—real and imagined—in both two- and three-dimensional, mixed-media projects. Track gigantic T-Rex footprints, make papier-mâché dinosaur eggs and discover a hatching clay baby raptor not far from a colorfully collaged brontosaurus. Storytime reveals facts about the dinosaurs they are creating. A trip into the Jurassic can spark a lifetime of creativity.

Up, Up & Away

It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s a drone? No, it’s art! Creativity soars in this workshop as students use a wide variety of materials to make various mixed-media projects where the sky’s the limit. Participants look UP for inspiration as they paint, draw, cut, paste and sculpt with clay. Images will be projected on the ceiling and stories read about bugs, birds and hot air balloons. There will even be a sky filled with shooting stars to display their beautiful work. The students also learn facts about the weather and planets as they enjoy an artistic adventure in the clouds.

Creature Creations

Olivia Martinez

Tuition $275
Code K1316-21

Intriguing inchworms, fascinating fireflies, and fluttering butterflies are just a few of the colorful creatures that we will create in this weeklong workshop. As we learn about their environment and characteristics, we discover many beautiful aspects of these unique critters. We will craft birds, bugs and animals, big and small, using various media. Clay, papier mâché, watercolor and tempera paint, glue, glitter, beads, feathers, yarn and some found objects are just some of the items that will be used to create our one of a kind works of art. Books and songs that celebrate our fury, fuzzy and fantastical friends will be shared to make this playful and productive workshop something that children will treasure for a long time to come.
