These classes will be held throughout the spring and will give children and families an opportunity to learn about local ecology, exercise their problem-solving muscles, and engage their creativity with outdoor, hands-on activities.\u00a0\r\n\r\nA workshop, taught by Eddie Meyer, of Morgantown was recently held.\u00a0 The renowned artist, also known as \u201cEddie Spaghetti,\u201d guided participants in creating many prints and greeting cards using gelatin, colorful inks, natural materials and stencils.\r\n\r\n\u201cCombining the elements of STEAM in an outdoor setting is really fun,\u201d Adrienne Cedarleaf, Education Coordinator at the Yew Mountain Center, said. \u201cThe outdoors is a living classroom.\u00a0 I always like to figure out how you can tie back each subject to something that you find outside. While the learning is not so linear, and there may be lots of side-tracking, you\u2019ll always walk away with an interesting piece of information.\u00a0 That\u2019s what I love about it.\u201d\r\n\r\nUpcoming workshops include Feathers and Flocks with Tiffany Beachy on Saturday, May 15; Bugs, Butterflies and Bees with Dr. Elizabeth Long, Wednesday May 19; and Nature Mandala T-shirts, Wednesday, May 26.\u00a0 \r\n\r\nAll programs will be held at the YMC, from 2 to 5 p.m. Please register in advance. There is a $5 suggested donation, but we encourage all who are interested to register regardless if they choose to donate or not.\u00a0 Children ages seven and younger should be accompanied by an adult.\u00a0\r\n\r\nFind out more at www.yewmountain.org\u00a0or call 304-653-4079.
