Geoff, an award-winning artist and muralist, takes students on an inventive journey into the world of creating art. Exploration and experimentation play key roles in this interactive presentation. Students will learn how to use both direct experience ( with nature and people) and indirect experience (memories, reflections) to create their own artistic expressions. This hands-on presentation can be customized to include subjects and themes from classroom study.

Grades K-6; 45 minutes; availability: flexible with ample notice.
