While some art is meant to transcend time, other art is meant to change and disappear as nature takes over. Explore both of these concepts in these week-long classes! Learn how to recycle scrap material using reclaimed tile and mirror to create a 3-part mosaic that tells a story about our environment that will be shared with our local community. Then, spend your afternoons learning about Land Art and creating ephemeral hands-on activities that explore all that nature has to offer!
