Again  the focus of the class is on the process rather than the product, and having lots of fun while making art!

Supplies are provided but please send in a nut-free snack and drink.

Class is limited to 8, minimum 4.

My Very Tiny House- July 8 -11

Design and decorate your very own, very tiny home! (Or superhero headquarters, off-world outpost, fire station, fashion magazine office–whatever you might imagine)

Using a prefab wooden toy house from IKEA, we will draft blueprints, outfit and furnish a dream space where untold future adventures can play out.  We will work on painting, wall paper, artwork, furniture, carpets, pets---anything you can think of!

This camp is great for kids who like to design and build. Artists will be encouraged to be creative, solve spatial design problems, and collaborate to create objects that will spark further creative play at home.  The finishing touch to our doll house will be a custom family of peg dolls to bring the space to life.

Class taught by real life architect and rubbish-to-runway designer Cindy Schartman who will help us understand our choices and how they affect the feeling of the house. Students will take home a 22”x22” wooden house, outfitted with whatever designs their imagination can come up with.

For ages 7-9  $250

Monday - Thursday 9:00a - 2:00p

Please send your child with a nut-free lunch and water bottle. We will provide a healthy snack.

Creating Beneficial Insect Habitat + Bee Nesting Blocks Workshop with Aaron Parker

Beneficial insects perform a myriad of ecosystem services around us, the most visible being pollinating flowers and controlling pest insects, but they also eat weed seeds, aerate soil and numerous other tasks that are essential to a healthy ecosystem.

In this class we will talk about planting, managing and creating for optimum beneficial insect habitat. We will cover what plant families and species are most helpful to plant, how to manage them for maximum habitat potential and wrap up by creating our own native bee nesting blocks and bundles, all from recycled materials!

Each person will go home with minimum one block and one bundle, but if time and materials allow you could make several. These blocks and bundles make nice gifts for insect/ ecology minded friends and family. If you have an electric drill or hand pruners please bring them along, tools will also be provided.

Cost is $25
