This is not your average paint party, the Wild Wonder Creator paint party is filled with creativity and expressive art. Instead of making the exact same painting together, we celebrate our unique ideas and make spontaneous art from the heart. Want to make art with the ones you love? Bring your family and friends together for an intimate experience.  

“They’re not just playing

in nature, they are: Learning, creating, sensing, believing, relaxing, exploring, observing, wondering, connecting, discovering, appreciating, understanding, experimenting…”

~ Penny Whitehouse

“We worry about what a child will become tomorrow,

yet we forget that she is someone today.”

“Children are born with a sense of wonder 

and an affinity for nature. Properly cultivated, these values can mature into ecological literacy, and eventually into sustainable patterns of living.”
