Summer Camps at the Intersection of Art & Nature - Lynden Sculpture Garden

*The event has already taken place on this date: Wed, 08/28/2019
Lynden’s art and nature camps for children aged 20 months to 15 years integrate our collection of monumental outdoor sculpture and temporary installations with the natural ecology of our hidden landscapes and unique habitats. Led by artists, naturalists, and art educators, the camps explore the intersection of art and nature through collaborative inquiry and hands-on artmaking, using all of Lynden's 40 acres to create a joyful, all-senses-engaged outdoor experience.

Camps are organized around themes--from metamorphosis to webs--and introduce a range of imaginative experiences, materials, and tools. Working on projects individually and as a team, we'll be raising butterflies, building rafts to float across the pond, and recording our discoveries in prints, collages, and sculptures. Whether we are exploring environmental adaptation or the physics of flotation, digging in the vegetable garden or carving handles for our knives, our focus is on cultivating creativity and an appreciation of process. Most camps conclude with an informal showing for family and friends.

Join us for a summer of art and nature!
