Family 2nd Saturday: You’re the Artist

Family 2nd Saturday is a monthly program that enhances the visitor’s park experience by offering additional interactive opportunities. This month, join us in Zubie’s Classroom for a guided creative session led by local high school art students from U-Prep.  Now you are the artist - learn how to construct a giraffe, create a portrait, draw a cat, and more! Workshops are on a first come, first serve basis and each is different from the last. Children must be accompanied by an adult to participate in the workshops. Materials will be provided. Free for members, included in Park admission, only at Turtle Bay!
