    •  Art In Nature: Join our friends, Winooski Parks and Recreation for their free art program which invites community members to express themselves artistically in Winooski’s beautiful Public Parks! 

      Inspired by Andy Goldsworthy (famous sculptor, photographer, and environmentalist), this outdoor project facilitates an opportunity to create art by incorporating natural and urban surroundings while also providing an environment of mindfulness! Feel a renewed sense of excitement, inspiration, and peace of mind. 

      Winooski Parks and Recreation is offering two different program dates:

      Wednesday, October 18th at 4:30 PM at Memorial Park

      Sunday, October 22nd at 11 AM at Gilbrook Natural Area

 

Participants should consider appropriate Fall clothing and or bug spray. A journal and or camera may also enhance your experience! 

There are only 15 seats available – this special introductory program is free. Reserve your space today!
