This Week’s Program:
Come join the SLA for a fun afternoon of exploration and process-focused art with your little ones! For this program, we will be go on a short walk around the SLA headquarters, searching for natural items such as sticks, winter berries, pine cons, stones, etc. and maybe play some games along the way. Afterward, we will return to SLA headquarters where children will get to paint with their natural items, and therefore, explore shapes, colors, textures, and patterns. As the creativity flows, so will the hot cocoa! Some children might finish early and others might use the whole time, so families are welcome to stay for as long or as little as they like.
Audience: This program is geared towards families with young children. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
What to Bring: Participants should bring appropriate winter clothing for a short walk around the property.
