Weathergrams- (ages 7+) LIMITED

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Two things we can count on every day: there will be weather and there will be words. In this short, fun workshop, we’ll use both to compose and create  weathergrams--brief nature poems written on narrow strips of kraft paper and hung outdoors for the sun, wind, rain and snow to further inscribe.

***more info to help your child prepare- We will have a short walk, then some time to write a short nature poem, and then we will then create a Weathergram--they will write their poems on 7 x 3 strips of brown paper, string them with twine and they can take them home to hang out doors and watch how the weather affects them.
