June 12 – Marvelous marbled paper workshop. Come learn this thousand-year-old paper dyeing technique while creating a beautiful marbled paper card, perfect for brightening a friend’s day.

July 10 – Have you ever used the sun to create art? Energy from the sun keeps us warm and helps plants grow, but it can also create chemical reactions! We’ll use solar power to make beautiful sun prints out of natural items found in the park.

August 14 – Let’s put our brains to the test. Join us for an A-maze-ing STEM adventure to kick off the start of a new school year! Unleash your creativity while designing a marble maze out of everyday household items.
