Kaleidoscope: Art and Nature on Wheels is a mobile education program for Kettering youth. Launched in 2017, Kaleidoscope brings a specially outfitted van to parks and community events, offering free access to inspiring art activities. Kaleidoscope’s creative projects, taught through the lens of science, strive to deepen participants’ understanding of the connections between art and nature.
Wednesdays, May 29 – July 31
9 am – noon

FREE, Kettering residents only
We are bringing dynamic, meaningful and fun experiences in art and nature to you! Our mobile education program – Kaleidoscope: Art and Nature on Wheels – will encourage inspiration, creativity and learning in the non-traditional setting of your neighborhood parks.
Preregistration for each camp is required, as well as participation in a pre- and post-camp survey. Please meet at the park shelter. Pre-register for one or more camps on our registration site or call (937) 296-0294.
