Classes and Programs

Watercolor and Cells

This one-hour workshop introduces basic watercolor techniques while exploring what cells look like under a microscope. This is a low-pressure introduction to graded wash, wet-on-wet, and layering with watercolor—because an amoeba can be any shape!

Sketching and Insects

This class teaches basic insect anatomy and identification as you sketch various types of insects to create your own field guide. Classes for children under ten focus on common names and the basics of capturing proportions. Classes for older children and adults introduce more scientific terminology and techniques for creating depth and shadow.

Molding and Casting Fossils

This class offers a hands-on demonstration of the processes that form fossils. Create your own fossils using molds, casts, and clay while learning to identify common fossils.
