Young artists will utilize recycled materials, repurposed items bound for the landfill, and found items in nature (stones, wood, etc.) to create unique a unique piece of art. The outdoor sculpture exhibits at the Garden will serve as inspiration, including Perennially Green by Michelle Stitzlein, on display in the Welcome Center. Explore the many gardens and woodlands of Pittsburgh Botanic Garden to visualize what the campers’ collective artwork will be. The piece created at the end of the week will be displayed at the Garden through the end of October.
