Schools Out Nature Art Workshops
Wild Roots Studio offers Children’s Nature Art Workshops on many of the days that Poudre School District is out of session. In these camps we will create art from natural & recycled materials, take in sustainability lessons and enjoy nature walks. This year's day camps will be held at The Art Lab located in Old Town Fort Collins and the Wild Roots Art Barn located in Northwest Fort Collins. From these locations we will journey off on shorts nature walks to explore and collect nature for our crafts. Please send your kiddo(s) with a morning snack, lunch and water bottle. We will provide a light afternoon snack.
