Daisy Doodles – Art in the Garden

Daisy Doodles

Daisy Doodles is a fun, 2-day exploration of book making, journaling and art under the mentorship of local artists.  Children will tell their personal stories by creating hand-made books inspired by the garden’s flowers, trees and creek.  The camp will be held July 26-27, Tuesday & Wednesday, from 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM, with a snack break.

The camp is suitable for ages 9-10 for a maximum of 10 children.

Materials provided.  Free; donations to the Garden are appreciated.

 

Sawtooth Botanical Garden is a place filled with glory,

So, join this class of journal art and create a book (or two!) – a story!

 

Take some time with a mentor by your side,

Bind and glue and tear and rip to create your own design.

 

Journeying through the garden noting all you see,

Focusing on the treasures that you view for free.

 

Sketching as you wander with pencil, pens, paint, paper and glue,

Learning and creating treasure books that are just for you!
