Spring Arts Camp: Passport to the Enchanted Emerald Isle Ireland

$325

Unleash your inner artist and explore the Emerald Isle at our magical art camp during spring break! Dive into the wonders of Ireland through three creative workshops brimming with fun and learning:

FELTING: Fun and Furry Beasties 
From the tiny pygmy shrew to the mighty red deer, Ireland’s grasslands, forests and bogs boast many creatures. Work with artist Gustavo Boada to learn the technique of dry needle felting as you create your favorite Irish animal: a red fox, a hare, or even a hedgehog! Use felting tools and colorful roving to create your own wooly wonder. 

PUPPETRY & STORYTELLING: Finn MacCool the Giant & Other Fairy Tales 
Leprechauns and fairies, giants and banshees! Ireland has long been known for its magical folk, called the Aos sí, or “the Good People.” Explore some of these exciting stories with artist Julie Boada, and make rod puppets to create your own adventure inspired by these tales. 

MIXED MEDIA: Sacred Traditions of the Emerald Isle 
The Druids, who were the spiritual guides and healers of the Celts, had a profound connection to the forests. Learn with artist Laurie Witzkowski about the cultural and medicinal uses of various trees. Next, working with pen, ink, and watercolor, make a mandala of your favorite one. Then channel your inner Druid, and make some tree medicine!
