Teens are invited to learn valuable hands-on techniques used in the art fields while having tons of fun.

Students will spend the morning exploring Phipps Conservatory and using their observation skills as well as hands-on experimentation to delve into topics such as sustainability, habitats, pollination, urban wildlife, and more. In the afternoon, students will re-discover the same topics through paper making, paper collage, block printing, and book arts.
