Come explore your creative side in an all-outdoor experience of artistic fun! Dye cloth with things you find growing in the woods, sketch on mushrooms, paint with mud and bark, and make your crafts beautiful with decorative carving, feathers, glazes, or paint. The wilderness is a perfect place to find inspiration as an artist and creator, and this week, we’ll look at the forest with new eyes as we see the possibilities for beauty in the primitive skills world. We’ll have a chance to showcase our projects at the annual Brook 4th of July Parade on Monday!
