Exploring Pencil, Brush & Sculpture | David Hahn and John Franz

August 6 | 1pm - 4pm | Ages 6 - 13 | Tuition: $20

Letterboxing Extravaganza | Jill Levene

August 30 | 10am - 4pm | $12/individual | $20/parent & child | $30/family of three | 5 and under are FREE

What is better on Labor Day weekend than exploring the North Shore with your family? Add letterboxing to the equation and you'll be hooked on a new family hobby. Letterboxing is a recreational activity combining creativity with “treasure hunting” in parks, forests, and urban areas all around the globe. By following clues, participants track down hidden letterboxes that contain a unique, hand-carved rubber stamp. In this day-long extravaganza, Jill will first give an overview of letterboxing and its code of conduct. Then participants will design and create their own unique signature stamp to use while letterboxing. After completing their stamp, participants* will follow carefully mapped out clues to discover a hidden letterbox right near Grand Marais.


YOUTH CLASSES: September - October
