Winter Crystals: Wondrous Snowflakes & Crunchy Salt

11:00am - 1:00pm | Fort Lee Historic Park, Fort Lee


In this workshop we will explore the wondrous beauty of the snowflake crystal, and the unique geometric form it takes as it travels down onto our landscapes. In contrast, we’ll learn how another crystal – the salt crystal – which is applied on roads to melt snow and ice, impacts our land and waterway habitats. We’ll work with watercolor paints and table salt to create a crystallizing textured effect, and learn what people are doing differently to minimize over-salting our natural environments.

FREE AND FOR ALL AGES. Recommended for children 4+ with parents/caregiver. Wear layers for the variable weather, sturdy footwear, and bring a water bottle and snack/lunch. Clothing should be appropriate for nature exploration and studio art (ie: clothing/shoes/outerwear that may get wet, dirty or stained).
