Imagine art made of fruit, vegetables, flowers and leaves!  Join us for fun as we learn about the work of painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo, who used these objects to make detailed portraits of other people.  We’ll try our hand at Arcimboldo’s style, making interesting collages of images and natural objects. You really can make pictures and sculpture that you can eat, and use fresh produce as an art tool!  Along the way, we will investigate artistic style and art history through hands-on activities. Sometimes your product will be your unique creation and sometimes we will work together to make giant works of art.  No experience necessary; just bring your creative self and spirit of discovery.

About Your Extraordinary Saturday (YES)

For 1st – 4th Grade Students

A New Adventure Every Weekend

Your Extraordinary Saturday enables inquisitive, high achieving students in grades 1 - 4 to continue their learning outside of the traditional classroom. Courses are intentionally designed to inspire inquiry, activate imaginations, and engage eager learners in hands on discovery that is not possible within a regular classroom setting. While students are in class, parents are invited to listen to professional speakers on topics related to raising bright children, socialize with other parents, or visit a local coffee shop.
