Every year during Intergenerational Week in July, youths ages 12 and up have an opportunity to take classes side-by-side with a parent, grandparent, or other special relative or guardian. It is inspiring to see family members working together in the studios collaborating on projects, working together, and sharing ideas and laughs. This year, from July 14 through July 20, students made tables in the Woodworking Studio, baked cakes in the Cooking Studio, threw pots in the Clay Studio, and so much more. One young student named Christian crafted creations in leather working made from hides he trapped and tanned himself. To see more projects and to take a glimpse at what students did during Intergenerational Week 2019, view the photo album below or on Facebook. Registration for Intergenerational Week 2020 will open in January.
