Art and Nature Drop-In

Let's create and play with seasonal materials together on Thursday afternoons. We'll meet outdoors, weather permitting; virtual classroom otherwise. All ages welcome. Semester activity calendar and supply list will be posted on website. Fall activities include: mandalas, leaf people, natural dyes, herbal sachets, harvest art, rock collecting and painting, Thanksgiving centerpiece.

Materials: No additional materials required. 

Classes will be held virtually using Zoom and Google Classroom depending on the teacher’s preference. Some classes will include 1 or 2 field trips to local Concord-area conservation land, where students will practice the skills they learn virtually. During these field trips, everyone will be required to wear a mask and appropriately social distance. Any questions about social distancing protocol can send inquiries to Caroline Provost at
