Art takes nature as its model and we have plenty of nature to just do that. Before we create art we will hike to make our own paint brushes…..then it will be time to create dot paintings, nature paintings and fizz painting. Of course there is much more on this artistic adventure. By the end of the week you may have a budding Picasso living with you.
