Microscopes will be available to examine rock and sediment samples with geologists on hand to assist and interpret. For younger guests, coloring sheets highlighting prehistoric life in Florida and sea shells and Play-Doh™ for experimentation with formation of fossil molds will be available.

Masters in the Making, Jr.

LeMoyne Center for Visual Arts
Ever wanted to paint like the masters? Here’s your chance! Each month at LeMoyne we will focus on a particular artist and a selected piece from their body of work. Instructor Karen Mercer will give a brief talk about the artist and how they approached the canvas. Then students will be led as they experience recreating these famous works in a similar manner. Each session will meet on a Friday from 6:00-8:30 p.m. giving students enough time to complete their very own masterpiece.
