Start your summer by growing with us! Using the museum’s courtyard, Students will learn how to find art in nature by creating a sustainable garden, identifying regional plants, following a plant from seed to harvest and making garden-inspired works of art.
Creating your own comic story can be so much fun! Students will develop comic book characters using two and three-dimensional art, learn the elements of a comic story, and write and draw a comic page or strip. Students will draw, paint, ink and sculpt their way to an awesome Comic Creation!
