Join Art Instructor, Jessica DeCaro, for a series of nature-inspired arts & crafts classes that are geared towards children. Each class nurtures children’s curiosity and encourages exploration, adventure and discovery. Children will then creatively express their experience at Friendship Botanic Gardens in Michigan City, IN. A Student may register for just one class; or can register for as many as he or she desires.
Students will learn to combine nature with arts and crafts with this series of classes as a guide. They will be taught about the history of Friendship Botanic Gardens and everything it has to offer through a walk on the trails before each class. Students will forage items to use for the classes all while learning about the trees, flowers, bugs, and birds and more that help to make these Gardens so unique, beautiful and its role in our environment. At the Education Pavilion, their amazing finds will contribute to their imaginative art projects. $20/class
