Science Studio for Homeschoolers: Fun with Fungi

Join us as we become mycologists and investigate the wonderful world of fungi! We'll explore whether a mushroom is a plant, an animal or something all of its own! Dissect a mushroom and then use oil pastels, colored pencils and markers to create a macro drawing of magnified fungi.


Science Studio offers families the opportunity to investigate the connections between scientific concepts, the arts and the natural world. Each studio session showcases a unique collection of natural specimens for exploration and introduces families to a different form of art or art medium related to the collection of specimens. After exploring the natural specimens, children can create works of art to take home.
