Thursdays, 10-11:30 am
Sessions meet outdoors. In the event of rain, a make-up session will meet the following week.

Lynden’s Art + Nature Lab for children aged 4-6 integrates our collection of monumental outdoor sculpture with the natural ecology of our hidden landscapes and unique habitats. Join art educator and naturalist Claudia Orjuela for hands-on art making and all-senses-engaged exploration of the outdoor world at Lynden. Children and their caregivers are learning and discovering side by side. We will foster an environment that extends children’s thinking and wonder through play and inquiry, problem solving, experimentation, and manipulation of art materials. Different themes will connect Lynden’s environment and learning opportunities with children’s interests, broadening their sense of place as they expand their connections with the natural world and one another. Masks required for adults. Social distancing will be practiced at all times. To view our Guidelines for Parent-and-Child, Youth Workshops, click here.

Lynden’s hybrid Art + Nature Lab engages participants aged 7-11 in inquiry-based art and nature learning, problem solving, and creative making. Over the course of seven weeks, art educator Jeremy Stepien will guide you through a series of projects employing materials of your choice. Art + Nature Lab will meet outdoors at Lynden when weather permits, and on Zoom when it doesn’t (we will send out an alert each week, 24 hours in advance). IRL or on the screen, you can chat with your fellow artists, share your work, and explore the intersection of art and nature.

Social distancing will be practiced at all times. All participants are required to wear masks. Extra masks will be available for those who need them. To view our Guidelines for Parent-and-Child, Youth Workshops, click here.
