Artsy Animals

For students entering 6th - 8th grade

Do you like art? Here at the Zoo we do lots of artsy stuff featuring our favorite muses, the animals. This isn't just any art class; we will learn how our animals make their own paintings and then participate in some painting of our own. From creating towel animals to sketching, we will work with different media to make our own animals. Every participant will leave with a paper craft to be finished at home.

Limited to 20 students per session.
