    • Lights, camera, action! Put your director hat on and come join us for a fun-filled week of directing, designing, and producing your own stop-motion animation film. The week will end with a special screening for family and friends.

    • Collections come in all shapes, sizes, and forms. Naturalists collect and sort things they find into similar groupings to better understand the world around them. Join us at Hallam Lake as we observe, gather, and classify the plants and animals we find, providing inspiration for your own creative collections.

    • “If you want it to be art, it could be.” Let’s get to work in a hands-on workshop inspired by this quote from artist Oscar Tuazon. We’ll explore the relationships between form and function and use and uselessness by designing and building three-dimensional items out of everyday objects. Will your piece perform a function, have form, or both?

    • Birds, insects, mammals—we all observe and interpret the world around us differently. Abstraction is a way to visualize how we might view the world creatively. Artists will create their own series of abstract sculptures, using materials such as plaster and clay that are inspired by the natural world around Hallam Lake and beyond.

    • Artists are inspired by the world around them, from simple, everyday objects to complex ideas. Young artists will transform the textures from our worlds, including our favorite foods! We will create large-scale, abstract sculptures, beautiful enough to make you want to take a bite!

    • Teamwork is needed for this epic building workshop! Participants will learn how to construct a temporary structure to be used as a shelter and imaginative play from raw and found materials, such as cardboard and plywood. Family and friends are invited to complete the project by interacting with the space at the end of the week.
