Week 2 (Monday July 10 – Wednesday July 12) – Art and Nature
In this workshop we’ll expand on a favorite theme at Muckykids: combining traditional crafting techniques with found objects from nature. We will be printing with leaves, embellishing stones, building dioramas, making nature wands, and more. We will also make sun catchers, craft clothespin people for our dioramas, have fun making animal puppets and figures, and plant a window display that will grow throughout the summer!

Week 4 (Monday July 24 – Wednesday July 26) – Paper and Print
Paper, as an artistic medium, has incredible potential. In this offering we will sculpt with it, stitch it, create pets with it, and even make handmade paper with our scraps.

We will make sun prints and paper jewelry.
