    • From the dense undergrowth of jungles to the open shores of Hallam Lake, kids will explore real and imagined landscapes. We will experiment with foreground, middle ground, and background, creating layers with mixed media, natural materials, and unexpected objects. Wild colors, bold shapes, and expressive patterns are sure to be spotted in our final artworks!
