2023 Earth Arts Summer Week

August 21-25, 2023. Mon-Fri 9am-3pm

Mentors: Julie Nichols Kulik and Liz Jesch
Fee: $450-575/ five day week, self determined sliding scale

This program will have a similar rhythm to the Earth Arts Homeschool Program, (formally known as the Lantern Program) that is taught at Frosty Hollow during the school year.

Activities will be driven by children’s interests, and will include nature observation games, forest walks, crafts, and a welcoming community. 

We will all increase our awareness of the woods and the place in which we live. We’ll discover who lives in the forest and record our journeys through natural pigment drawings, mapping, clay and fiber sculptures, and stories.

Who: For ages 5-9 (older by invitation only)
