All ages welcome! Our family-friendly summer art workshops are back. Make and take home your own creations. Each week we combine art with some nature in the garden, and a refreshing glass of iced tea on the side.
Victorian garden-inspired collage, giant colorful “spider webs” and with your own fuzzy crawlers, painted planters, something to grow on your window-sill.
Each week we’ll feature a different project. For a full schedule visit our website or call. On rainy and hot days, the program moves indoors.
Admission: $4 individual, or $10 family, per session. Children under 3 admitted free.
July 11 Breezy Butterflies! It’s an afternoon to create butterfly mobiles, a perfect item to bring the summer spirit into your home. We’ll look for some butterflies in the garden for inspiration, too.
July 18 It’s all about spiders – mostly colorful imaginary ones. Help build our giant colorful web, and make your own fuzzy spiders to take home.
July 25 Pretty Pots for Pretty Herbs & Flowers: We have the brushes, paint, and stencils to decorate terra cotta planters to adorn you window sills or terrace. We provide the materials in a bountiful garden. You can also start a plant, if you want one for your planter.
August 1 It’s for the birds! We will be assembling birds’ nests from natural and man-made materials and will share a collection of actual nests to see how birds construct them. If you haven’t done any bird-watching, we’d be happy to provide an introduction.
August 8 What is a Victorian garden? We’ll introduce you to our Victorian garden features and invite everyone to design their own fanciful garden collage.
