Go Green: Creativity in Nature

Aug 1 - 5, 2022

Concept

Gardens are full of animals, insects, flowers and, of course, food. In this nature-inspired workshop, students work together to create clay garden totems, batik fabric with animal prints, birdhouses to support their little critters and papier-mâché vegetable baskets. Students also take nature walks around the Ranch campus and observe and learn about the importance of green-garden creatures.
