1 Fish, 2 Fish: Watershed

- $30

Join local artist and ACP instructor Libby Ramage in a one-day workshop inspired by some of the Watershed’s many “residents”. Students will make a series of fish prints using latex fish forms from actual fish (a little slimy but not stinky). They will then translate their prints, using markers, into two larger fish to staple together to make a kite. Decorate these flying fish with tape and streamers.

This workshop is part of ACP’s Saturday Sampler for kids at the Watershed (Water, Webs & Wings!). Register for one, two, three, or all four (for the most fun!). Art classes meet in the Watershed Center of Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association. The Watershed Center is the new LEED platinum environmental center of the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association. Located on the Watershed Reserve in Hopewell Township, the center showcases sustainable energy features such as a green roof, geothermal heating and cooling and an innovative wastewater wetland.
