Flying Colors Art After School Ages 6-10
Tuesdays, September 14-October 5 (4 weeks)
We’ll celebrate our newest exhibition, Birds in Art, by creating our own great bird-themed art! Get a behind-the-scenes look at the works in our exhibition. Each participant will create works with different media that are inspired by some of our favorite artists who worked with birds. Explore the works of Charley Harper, Constatin Brancusi, David Sibley, and more. Limited to 8 participants.
Wild Woods Adventure Ages 5-9
Wednesdays, September 15-October 6 (4 weeks)
Explore the forest like never before as we search for salamanders and snakes, help to build a fort, learn how to make fire, and more! We’ll hike in the forest, learn some basics of wild edibles, dig in the dirt, search the stream for creatures, and discover our engineering skills as we make a small dam for our stream. We’ll test our outdoor adventure skills in a safe, fun atmosphere that will allow kids to challenge themselves while exploring our wild woods! Limited to 8 children for a great small group experience, so register early.
Cool Concoctions After School Ages 6-10
Fridays, September 17-October 8 (4 weeks)- FULL
Make our favorite slimes, doughs, mixtures, and more in this hands-on science class! Each week we’ll create some amazing concoctions and learn the science behind them! Class will be held outside in our Wheels in the Woods picnic area unless extremely inclement weather. Students will be distanced for projects and will have their own materials with which to work. Limited to 8 students.
Junior Curator & WILD! Keeper Programs
Established in 1949, our Junior Curator Program gives children a unique opportunity to experience life on a real farm. The Junior Curator Program is the Museum's junior volunteer program and consists of five sessions. Similar to the Junior Curator program, WILD! Keepers gives participants hands-on experience in the care, feeding, and enrichment of our exotic teaching animals.
