Teaching Artist: Karen O. Brown
Come take the edge off the summer heat and discover the secret underwater world of our rivers and ponds with visual artist Karen Brown. Using collage, pastels and paper, we will create an art book of the animals and plant that make up the wonderful water world below the surface of our Anacostia River. Recommended for children ages 0-5, but everyone is welcome.
1:00 pm – 4:00 pm: “Creative Garden Party”
Teaching Artist: Kimberly Gaines
During this all-ages workshop, we will collaboratively create a life-sized paper flower garden. Participants will make large flower petals to add to the paper garden backdrop. Each artist will also create a unique crown and have their portrait taken in front of the flower garden. All ages welcome.
