Refresh from a big day at work or school with art and nature! "Over the river and through the woods" we'll go as we take a virtual indoor hike to discover many of winter's cool animal tracks and traces. Learn basic animal track ID skills, as well as how to differentiate a fox's tracks from a bobcat's and how to tell if a deer had been walking or running. Along with new skills you can use during your own winter hikes, participants will also create their own animal track work of art on a cotton cloth bandanna. This can be used as an artistic piece, an ID piece, or even as wearable art!
Cost: $25 per participant. Price includes all supplies to make and take your very own track ID bandana.

What do Jane Goodall, George Lucas, Marie Curie and Leonardo da Vinci all have in common? Each is a famous person who has kept a field journal. Now it's your turn to begin your own life-long field journaling adventure when you join me in the studio for this eco-inspired winter curiosity workshop. During the class, all participants will receive their own journal, learn important field journaling techniques about observing science in nature, and then capture these exquisite moments to keep forever. While learning about the fascinating natural history of this season, implementing this field journaling process will foster creativity in the arts and sciences, improve memory, and promote relaxation. Best of all, it brings us closer to our outdoor world and encourages all who participate to "speak for the trees" and become ambassadors for the environment!
$25 per person for the class which includes a nature journal, writing tools and a pencil ca
