Art Adventure

After its successful inception in 2012-13, Art Adventure has grown into a nearly school-wide program at Forest.  Last year, Forest's participants included all of K, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade.  This year, we are trying something new: we are opening up the program to interested teachers in all grades (K-5).  

If you have interest in volunteering in your child's class, please email 
Katie Wencker at forest.artadventure@gmail.com.
