The Art Adventure Experience

 Just in case you’re wondering what we do on our Saturday Art Adventures, here’s a little sneak peak…
While we’re waiting for everyone to arrive, we play “kiss a fish” at the pond: We lay down on the rock pier and put our faces near the water and then throw some fish food in.  When the fish come up to get the food they make a little splash.  It takes a little bravery and gives a little thrill.

We take a short 10-15 minute walk up the hill to the pavilion or Yurt, depending on the weather…

We introduce ourselves with a warm-up game….

Then we get down to business with different art materials, often exploring the environment to find natural items to help us create.

We usually need time to let things dry, so we play group games while we wait.

We get a little messy, but that’s part of the fun….

And we always end with a sweet game to give us the energy to get back down the hill.
