Arkansas Craft School
Instructor: Anne Criss
In this 3 week workshop (2 hours each day, 3 consecutive Saturdays) retired elementary school teacher and current professional artist Anne Criss will teach students (grades 3-5) to look for the art found in nature everyday, as well as learn how the natural environment is important, inspiring, and fragile.
Materials provided include the Saving Nature Now booklet which contains 9 activities, some of which will be done on site at the Arkansas Craft School, or off site at the local park down the street from the school, and others that can be done at home.
The “at school” and “local park” activities will include: Creating a Nature Journal, Studying Insects, Planting a Native Species, Building a Bee Condo, Creating Recycled Art, and Making a Leaf Rubbing. Students will be required to bring items that can be used for the recycled art activity. Activities that can be done at home are: Saving Electricity, Saving Water, and Reading About an Endangered Species. On completion of the activities, the participants will be given a Green Team Patch.
Tuition: $30 for all 3 classes, or $15 per class
