During this after school club, students will experience biophilia first hand when they receive their own nature journal and art supply toolkit to begin exploring the nature of spring.

Group Class Sizes are limited to 12 students    


 

Did you know that during one feeding session, PA bats can eat up to 1200 insects?  As we approach summer, imagine how buggy our world would be without them! Please join Jolie Chylack and Steph Stronstik of PA Bat Rescue for this informative program and even a chance to see a live rescue bat up close! We will learn about how critical bats are in our environment and by the end of the talk everyone will understand the importance of bat conservation and how we can participate in the recovery effort using our own backyards. After examining the features of this incredible nocturnal mammal, we will sit down for a painting-made-easy session with Jolie.  All participants will make and take home a bat portrait, painted on a wood panel - a great conversation piece to spread all that you've learned about this keystone species!

 

$35 per person. All supplies for taking home this ready-to-hang bat artwork are included.  We'll also enjoy complimentary light refreshment and a " toast" to celebrate the recovery of this keystone species  (wine for adults and sparkling lemonade for kids).

 

Class sizes are limited and filled on a first-come first-served basis.

Microgreens are simply young vegetable plants packed with flavor and nutrition. And watching them grow from seed to sprout is and art form in itself; like watching a dance play out or sculpture take form.  During this class, participants will learn to grow several varieties of microgreens as they create their own garden in a beautiful silver or glass vintage container. When the plants begin to sprout, this arrangement makes lovely centerpiece for any dinner or coffee table. We'll also talk about harvesting the greens and send home delicious ideas about how they can be enjoyed. 

 

Cost: $45 per person.  All supplies for taking home a lovely vintage microgreen container garden will be supplied. Additionally, participants will enjoy and take home recipes for complimentary green smoothies  (a delicious treat) and  light refreshments made with microgreens.  

      Class sizes are limited and filled on a first-come first-served basis.
