Using Your Voice

10:00 am - 5:00 pm, In the Art Studio  

Join us in the Art Studio as we explore many different ways to express ourselves and use our own voice through art! From zines to signs, to collage - how can you relay your thoughts through your art-making?

Seeds of Change

10:00 am - 2:00 pm, In the Art Studio 

Explore forgiveness in the Art Studio; first, write or draw about how someone made you mad or sad. Then rip up that paper and mix it in seed and dirt mixture to make seed balls.  When you plant your seed ball, watch how it grows, showing how something beautiful can grow from forgiveness.

This activity will be offered while supplies last.
