Artful Insects
Virtual Workshop,
Session 1 (for ages 9-12)

M@H: Virtual Workshop Series is a multi-week virtual learning program, designed to engage learners in hands-on inquiry at home.

Participants each receive a kit of uniquely chosen materials and supplies that support weekly inquiry-based activities focused on a STEM content theme, while Montshire Educators provide live, on-screen engagement.

Learn about the intricate beauty, anatomy, and adaptations of insects during this three week series as we meet the museum’s live insect collection up close on your screen, examine examples of different artists’ work, and best off all create your own insect art using a different medium each week from wire sculpting to felting. All the art supplies (minus those large live insects) are included in your science kit.
