Animal Camouflage: Watershed

- $30

Join local artist and ACP instructor Susan Hoenig in this special art/nature workshop.
How is it that camouflage and mimicry effects the life of so many species of animals, in the ocean and on the land? Animals have an amazing ability to adapt to their environment. Students will learn about camouflage, a valuable advantage in the survival of a species. The color and/ or pattern of an animal often allow it to either blend in or stand out from its environment. Some animals can even change color to blend in. In this workshop students will focus on black and white animals. Participants will draw and then make a collage assemblage of a black and white animal of their choice. Hide and go seek!

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!).

The Watershed Center is the new LEED platinum environmental center of the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association.
