Spider Webs: Watershed

- $30

Join local artist and ACP instructor Susan Hoenig in a one-day workshop inspired by some of the Watershed’s many “residents”. Come spin a web with us! Students will look at the beauty of spiders and their amazing webs. Spider webs have existed for at least 100 million years. Throughout history, there have been many cultural depictions of spiders in popular culture, mythology and in symbolism. The spider symbolized patience and persistence due to its hunting technique of setting webs and waiting for its prey to become ensnared. In addition, the spiders have inspired creations from ancient geo-glyphs, large designs produced on the ground (the Nazca Lines in Peru) and designs on pottery. Students will learn about many different types of spider webs and then make their own mixed media design to bring home.

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.
