APRIL Vacation Week - Art Explorers

GREEN WEEK! – April 21-24, 2020

Welcome Spring and join us in celebrating and exploring the arts at The Umbrella.  Projects during Green Week aim to build sustainable ideas and practices in everyday living by touching on themes of reduce, reuse, and recycle.  Transform plastic parts, newspaper, cardboard, scrap fabrics, and recycled ceramics into art.  Turn what some people call trash into beautiful art.  Use art materials from nature while learning about plants and animals in our local environment.  Students have the opportunity to work in the mediums of Drawing & Painting, 2D and 3D Mixed Media, Ceramics, Performing Arts, Art & Nature, Woodworking/Workshop, and More!  Join us, and let the art exploring begin. #DiscoverYourArts
