Ages 9-12. Participants will fine-tune their observation and recording skills with up-close exploration of the natural world — the colors of an insect's wing, the feather patterns of an owl, the composition of a flower — and learn a wide range of artistic skills including painting, weaving, botanical illustration, print-making, ceramics, and sculpture. Plenty of time for games, and family and friends will be treated to an art show on the final day!
