In Celebration of Youth Art Month, The Trailhead will be hosting an exciting workshop lead by local Artist, Carol Connor.


The Trailhead is proud to present a not-to-be missed art class with local professional artist, Carol Connor!  Discover how to re-purpose exciting materials from discarded items to create beautiful pieces of art!  Carol Connor will lead families through the process of making small, nature-based sculptural art pieces from everyday household objects that would otherwise be tossed out as trash.  Carol is an expert in re-purposed art, and will share her passion, tips, and tricks with the group.  In addition, those who are interested are invited to join Carol the following week on Saturday, March 28 at 10 a.m. to help while she takes the participants’ sculptures and installs them in The Trailhead Art Bar as one large group sculpture that will remain on display!

Saturday, March 21
10am – 12pm
Ages 6 and up
