Skulls and Bones art program at Thorn Creek, Oct. 26

Kids of all ages can bone up on their artistic skills and anatomical knowledge at Thorn Creek Nature Center on Oct. 26. Join the fun at Thorn Creek Nature Center for “Skulls and Bones,” a Halloween art experience.

There are two session available: 1-2 p.m. and 2:30 – 3:30 p.m.

Internationally-known artist Patricia Moore will guide kids in this Halloween art experience using bones as subject and medium. Skulls, antlers, and the macabre remains of the animals of Thorn Creek Woods --- deer, raccoons, voles and other wildlife -- will be on display for aspiring artists to examine. Participants can draw them in the vibrant colored surrealistic style of Georgia O’Keefe or in the somber tones of an 18th century naturalist. Each participant will leave the session with an artwork suitable for framing or display.

“Skulls and Bones” is open to all ages; children under age 6 should be accompanied by an adult.

All art materials will be supplied and refreshments will be served. There is a $5 fee per person per session to participate. Participants must register by Friday, October 24.
