August 6, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until August 10, 2018
Monday through Friday, August 6 to 10, 9 a.m. to noon
Young artists are invited for a week of bird-inspired art making and movement. They will be informed by nature studies, walks through the museum’s galleries, and a trip to the Audubon Project Puffin Center. Participants will learn about felting, painting, and storytelling through dance and choreography. Our week of flight will culminate in an informal offering of our works to share with friends and family. The sky’s the limit!
