Garden Adventures
Tuesdays, May 2-23, 2:00-2:45 p.m.
Grab your garden gloves and a magnifying glass, and explore the fascinating life of a seed! Junior gardeners will love learning about what seeds need to sprout, watching roots, stems, and leaves grow, and investigating the role of helpful garden insects! We’ll make our discoveries using hands-on science and art activities and trips to our very own museum garden. Best of all, your child will get to take home a plant of their very own! Caregivers must stay with children.

Ages 3-6
$30 Members | $35 Public

Messy Mornings
Wednesdays, April 5-26, 9:45-10:15 a.m.
Explore art from a pint-sized point of view! Whether learning how to paint with marbles or making a bouncy ball, you and your child are sure to have a fabulous time in this creative class! Each session offers new activities so you can enjoy this class over and over again. You will get messy, so wear old clothes! Caregivers must stay with children. This class is perfect for grandparents.

PreK Pottery
Fridays, May 5-26, 9:30-10:30 a.m.
Little hands will love squishing and molding, painting and creating their own ceramic figurines! Each session will begin with a story and finish with building something that relates to what we’ve read. Children will be able to take home at least two completed pieces (glazed and fired) at the end of each session!
