The Family Art Project is an inter-generational program for families to come together and appreciate lessons that nature has to share. By coming together to create art and engage in storytelling, families draw on their own personal and cultural experiences to cultivate meaningful relationships to the environment. Each weekend’s themed project encourages creativity and experimentation by incorporating a range of art techniques using natural and up-cycled materials. One day we may be making paper from plants found in the compost and the next, we may be painting wings to wear so we can fly!

This program is for everyone in the family. Each family member is invited to assume their own unique role during the collaborative and skill-building creative process. Each project is designed so that the art-making can be modified and tailored for each individual, regardless of age.

Program Information

Onsite, drop-in programs most Saturdays and Sundays, 10AM-1PM.

Family Art Project Values

By working together, listening to each other’s stories and learning about the world around us, we nurture individuals who care for nature and for one another.

We are curious about what nature has to teach us, and use our curiosity as a tool for learning and deepening our relationship to the environment and our community.

We provide a welcoming, supportive communal space that allows us to unleash our wild imaginations in the stories we tell and the art we create.
