For your art activity, choose from clay, paper sculpture, or painting. Additionally in May–September we offer sun print photography and in August–November, apple cider pressing with printmaking. The fee (for up to 15 participants) is $150 for a clay activity, $100 for all non-clay activities. The cost for each additional child for all activities is $5. There is a maximum of 20 children.
