Nature & Art: Naturally Beautiful- A Tie Dye Workshop
Join Alexandria Dove, a long-time Sawtooth student, in her Girl Scouts Bronze Award Project on Saturday, September 14th from 9am-12pm at the Gateway Nature Preserve at Washington Park in Winston-Salem, NC. The community service project combines her love of nature and art and will explore the use of nature as an art medium. Students will use natural materials such as grass, leaves, blueberries, clay dirt, and even water from Salem Creek to dye cotton fabric wrapped with kudzu to create exciting tie-dye patterns! Call Sawtooth to register at 336-723-7395 ext. 1201. Registration is required and open to any 3rd-8th graders. The workshop if free but please consider donating. All monies will be split between both Gateway Nature Preserve and Sawtooth School for Visual Art (where funds will go toward student scholarships).
