In the Garden: Summer Art + Nature Workshops at Lynden
Lynden Sculpture Garden 2145 W. Brown Deer Rd. Milwaukee, WI 53217
Lynden’s summer art and nature workshops integrate our collection of monumental outdoor sculpture and temporary installations with the natural ecology of our hidden landscapes and unique habitats. Led by Lynden education staff, these standalone outdoor workshops are built around biweekly themes that suggest imaginative possibilities and promote intimate discoveries in art and nature through collaborative (but well-distanced) inquiry and hands-on artmaking. Lynden is committed to making its programs available to all. Need-based tuition waivers are available.
Horsemanship Week is more than a summer camp, it’s an experience your child will treasure for a lifetime! Weeklong sessions offer up-close, hands-on time in the company of horses. Your child will learn basics of riding, horse care, feeding and grooming.
