Shapeshifters in the Forest: Natural Artsmithing

Inspired by the art of Andy Goldsworthy, Tracks & Tales is taking children and families out into the forest to make art!

Following our instincts, breathing in the forest, we will use leaves, branches, rocks, water, wind, and other natural elements to create temporary yet timeless sculptures.

Here are some inspirational pieces by Goldsworthy:

Family Friendly

Shapeshifters classes are available for both families (parents or guardians can accompany children of any age) or unaccompanied children in specific age groups. Please contact us if you are interested in enrolling your child on their own so we can match similar or complimentary aged children.

Location

All sessions take place take place on our secluded creekside property with a wide lawn and acres of huge trees.

We are located about 4 miles east of Duvall, Washington at 31815 NE 162nd St. Duvall, WA 98019. View Google Map

Parking: When you turn onto 318th Ave NE, come down the hill. We're right at the bottom where the road tees onto 162nd St. Please pull *ALL THE WAY* into our driveway to minimize blocking our one lane road.

Clothing

Please provide a complete changes of clothing. We have a creek, mud, fog and often wet underbrush. Wool clothing is very good if it is cool. Camouflage colors (greens, browns, greys) will make stealth games much easier. Waterproof clothing is ok, but tends to be loud, so don't rely on it alone. Make sure whatever they wear is ok to get dirty and wet.

Food

Students should bring a hearty lunch and large snack every day. It is also vital to pack a water bottle every day as we run and play often!

Labeling

Please label items so we can help get them back to you at the end of each class!

Backpack

Helpful for carrying/storing above items!
