Time: 9AM – 12PM
Tickly, prickly, creepy, crawly bugs come in all shapes and sizes! This exploratory workshop studies lightning bugs, butterflies, spiders and other magnificent insects. How many different kinds of ladybugs can we discover? Why do fireflies glow? Do monarch butterflies really travel 2,000 miles south in the fall? Together we explore these questions, as we craft whimsical artworks inspired by insects big and small. We create sculptural bumblebees from recycled materials, beautiful watercolor butterflies, shiny clay beetles, wearable antenna and giant dragonflies! We use all kinds of art supplies such as pastels, watercolors, paint, glue, clay and papier-mâché! Let’s get buzzzzzzzing!
