The Art of Nature: Hibernation

Kids will study hibernation and then paint what they learn at IRWS Topsfield!

Join watercolorist Brenda Sloane in a monthly program that combines nature and art. We will start with a walk on the sanctuary to observe the topic of the month. We will then return to the Nature Center to create a follow-up work of art.

A PowerPoint presentation highlighting the hibernating and non-hibernating animals of the sanctuary will start our afternoon. Then we'll take a walk to try to locate the animals we have studied. Finally, we will return to the warmth of the Nature Center to sculpt a clay likeness of our animal of choice as well as a watercolor background of its habitat.
