Spring Art and Science Camp: Celebrating Spring With ArtStart!


Calling all 6-12 years olds who love science and art! “Spring has sprung! The grass has riz! I wonder where the birdies is?” Join ArtStart artists for mornings filled with three art and science projects that celebrate Spring and nurture your imagination! 

Of Bees, Butterflies and Bots!
Artist Gustavo Boada helps you design a never-seen-before insect. Inspired by bees, butterflies, dragonflies, and beetles, use discards, scraps, recycled materials and more to create your unique insect. Next, using simple circuitry and batteries, transform your insect into a robot! Finally, like an entomologist or a scientist who studies insects, name, classify and display your insect in its habitat.

Becoming A Bird Hang Out
Backyards are busy places for birds in Spring, both migratory and those who stay over the winter. Learn about the birds in your neighborhood with artist Jeanette Dickinson. Then construct, paint, and decorate a wooden bird house. Then create a bird feeder from a tennis ball container and fill it with bird seed. Place them somewhere safe outdoors. Now watch as your backyard becomes a popular bird hang out!

Beyond the Vegetable and Flower Garden
Gardens have many purposes beside places to grow food or raise flowers when the sun warms the earth. Gardens can be places where almost invisible wee creatures like elves, fairies and gnomes set up their homes. Or gardens can be quiet places to reflect on the beauty of nature like a Japanese Zen garden. Work with artist Laurie Witzkowski and create a miniature Fairy Garden and miniature Zen Garden from a variety of reuse and recycled materials.
