Scheduled Classes

The classes offered at Sinking Springs are suitable for all ages. We welcome you to join us with a friend or two, or visit with your group (4-H, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Church and Youth Groups, etc.).  You’ll enjoy a one-of-a-kind adventure with Ann Stubbs where she will provide an opportunity for you to connect with nature through crafts and educational outings.

Ann holds a Master’s Degree in Art and Elementary Education from the University of Delaware. She has done commissioned pieces and educational programs for the White House, Campbell’s Soup Company and Longwood Gardens. Her passion is to inspire creativity through nature in children and adults of all ages.

Take part in a class or two and appreciate a hands-on experience that will spark a fire in you for the love of nature. Leave behind your fast-paced world and acquaint yourself with the natural world. All generations are welcome, so make this an adventure for the whole family!
