The Majestic Tree – Investigate, Create, Collaborate!
Apr 26 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

Come celebrate Arbor Day by learning how trees grow. Investigate the different types of trees that grow here in Monmouth County. We will then decorate twig tree crowns with different leaf shapes and colors we create. Wearing our crowns, we will pair up and create shadow drawings of ourselves as trees. The workshop will culminate in a group street mural, a larger chalk drawing in the museum’s Art and Nature Center of all of us as trees creating a temporary group mural! Children must be accompanied by a chaperone, one chaperone per child/group.
