*About The Natural assemblage & Nature Object Collections Activity

Rocks and acorns and feathers, oh my! Participants will use objects gathered from di Rosa to compose either an assemblage artwork or a sorted collection.

Finished pieces can be taken home that day, or left at di Rosa to be displayed at the “Eclectic Collecting” event on November 12.

Great for all ages and interests- no one is too young or old to participate!
