ART-ventures in the Rainforest (ages 5-12)
Head off on a jungle safari! Art adventurers trek through the rainforest, discovering the wondrous and rare creatures that call it home. Journey into the world of parrots, jungle cats, snakes, red-eyed tree frogs and more, and experiment with whimsical and original art forms and techniques. Create stained glass tigers, build rockin' rain sticks, paint ceramic turtles, design repoussé reptiles, and sculpt froggy light switch covers. Throughout the voyage art adventurers learn about the importance of saving the rainforest, and pick up super artist survival skills like printmaking, painting, collage, and journaling. They even make their own t-shirts using a unique and unusual oil pastel technique. Surprises and laughter round out this fun-filled art safari. Adventurers return home with awesome works of art each week.
