Explore nature and your creative side during Legacy Learning's Fall Weekend

Relax and unwind as you immerse yourself in the beauty of Briggs Woods Park, just south of Webster City, for a weekend of all things creative. Join Legacy Learning Boone River Valley for its annual Fall Weekend, Sept. 27-29.

Journaling, Creative Writing and Art Making

Carmon Slater’s workshop, an Art Making Experience for Teachers, Parents and Grandparents, is Saturday, Sept. 28 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday, Sept. 29 from 12 to 3 p.m. This workshop will give participants an opportunity to experiment with various art making activities such as solar nature prints, fish prints, clay and paint. Then students will interpret and explore the experience through creative journaling.

Carmon comes to Legacy Learning from Colorado and has spent a lifetime finding creative and artistic ways to engage children with nature. He has a BA, MA and PhD from the University of Iowa and combines his love of science with his love of art. His work has been shown throughout the United States and he’s the past president of the American Craft Association.

Fall Watercolors

Enjoy the beautiful fall foliage of Briggs Woods Park while exploring various watercolor techniques in a workshop led by artist Dick Hanson Saturday, Sept. 28 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Work in a relaxed setting with a talented artist to learn some simple techniques such as frisket, salt and alcohol that will allow you to express yourself. Take inspiration from the shapes and patterns of the trees in the park to interpret them in your work.

Supplies will be available, but feel free to bring any watercolors or papers you might wish to use. No experience is required and all skill levels are welcome.
