“Nature Artists”

For children 3-6 years old.

Our unique vacation week program for children ages 3 through 6 at the South Shore Natural Science Center is a partnership between experienced Nature Center Preschool teachers and knowledgeable Science Center Naturalists!  Teachers and Naturalists combine their talents to facilitate children’s discovery of the small animals and habitats in their own backyard.

Through outdoor exploration, art, and more, children will discover the artist inside themselves. Each day a new artist will be explored as children connect to nature and express their unique creativity with techniques such as painting, building with found natural items, sculpting with clay, and more. Please dress appropriately to go outside.
