Youth Programs

LexFarm youth programs offer many opportunities for hands-on learning and play in a beautiful farm setting. Based in the LexFarm learning garden, our classes expose children to all aspects of the growing cycle: planting, weeding, watering, and harvesting. We explore the wildlife at the Arlington reservoir and care for the animals at neighboring Silk Fields Farm. At this time our various programs serve children from 6 months old through 3rd grade!

Art in the Garden (5-8 y/o)

Let’s let the life at the farm inspire us! Come play and make art with natural materials and traditional art media. The garden is a rich source of the elements artists use – color, shape, line and texture. We’ll also visit the animals at Silk Fields Farm and enjoy the sights and sounds there. In these 4 sessions children will use their senses through games, scavenger hunts, drawing, painting and building. Each class will include an open-ended project as well as time to explore materials through play and get to know the farm environment.

Class size is limited to 10 children. We’re lucky to have Ann Wynne joining us as our garden art educator this spring! Ann is a local artist, art teacher, and early childhood educator with a background in nature education.
