Patterns in Nature: Scavenger Hunt

Instructor: Kim Meyers Baas, Ages 8-12, $135

scav·eng·er hunt: a game, typically played in an extensive outdoor area, in which participants have to collect a number of miscellaneous objects

Explore, discover, and collect natural and found objects found within Ox-Bow’s great outdoors in a scavenger hunt game each day. Each list will challenge the young artists to complete the tasks in the most creative manner. Collaboratively, the artists will juxtapose items from the hunt into still-lives and create 2D designed patterns. We will explore fundamental principles such as repetition, positive/negative space, organic and geometric shapes, and form. The young artists will be encouraged to experiment with a variety of media and color while exploring beginning ideas of realism, abstraction, and imagination.
