Creating art helps young children develop imagination, creativity, and self-esteem as well as early math skills, such as, spatial awareness, pattern, and symmetry. At Wildwood Nature School, the focus is on the process of making art — learning about color, line, and shape and experiencing different media — rather than on acheiving a pre-determined “ideal” result.
We offer two classes, each tailored to a particular age group. The classes are drop-off, although parents are welcome to stay if they like.:
Tuesdays 10:00 am – 11:00 am, ages 2-4
Session 1 (October 2 – 30) Art Exploration — Children will explore a variety of media and processes for creating art.
Session 2 (November 6 – December 11, no class Thanksgiving Week) Sticky Fingers — Art created with glue and other adhesives.
Tuesdays 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm, ages 4-6
Session 1 (October 2 – 30) Natural Arts — Children will use items collected on nature walks to paint, print, collage, and create.
Session 2 (November 6 – December 11, no class Thanksgiving Week) Homemade Cards and Gifts — Children will create artwork perfect for giving to family and friends.

We have filled up all of our summer camps except for the week of July 24-27.
Humming Hive Forest Preschool welcomes children, ages 3-6 years old, to come and experience the magic of the forest for weekly summer camp programs. The school is located on the edge of Forest Park, on a hill, just across the river from St. Johns.
We have a daily rhythm that includes singing, storytelling, snacks of healthy, organic food, circle time, gardening, art and crafts, free play in the forest, rest time, and visiting the 5 friendly chickens. We provide an opportunity for your child to come and enjoy the peace of the forest, not too far from home.
Each week, we have camp Tuesday through Friday, from 9am to 2pm. We are outside all day, rain or shine (usually the sun shines through the summer!). Please visit the website, www.humminghive.org, for more information, or e-mail Ms. Christy at email@example.com.
I look forward to hearing from you!
