The Museum of Art Fort Collins Presents

Blue Gold Days
A drop in FREE Art Program held in Oak Street Plaza each Thursday from 12-3pm from June 23 – July 28

Sponsored by Blue Federal Credit Union & DDA
Come out to Oak Street Plaza this Summer as we celebrate our river and the water it gives us!  All supplies will be provided and different local water organizations will be on hand to learn more about water.  All activities will be held 12-3pm.

June 23
Waterbugs
Make a water bug using feathers, clothespins and other found objects.  We will talk about how bugs are an important part of the ecosystem of the Cache la Poudre River.

June 30
Rock Painting
Rocks are an important part of a river’s ecosystem.  They allow small fish to hide from predators and give bugs great protection, too.
Guests-Poudre District Library

July 7
Divining rods
When someone is looking for water, perhaps to dig a well or find an underground spring, they may use what is called a divining rod.  Using sticks and yarn we will make our own diving rod and go out to search for water.

July 14
Blow Painting
Rivers are affected by different environmental conditions such as wind, snow, and rain.  We will make artwork that is influenced by these factors and see how it affects our art. 

July 21
Tie Dye Bandanas
Water is important to everything we do, even art!  Using water and dye we will make bandanas to take on your next hike up the Cache la Poudre River. 

July 28
Fish Prints
What kinds of fish do you find in the Cache la Poudre?  How do these fish affect the other organisms in the river?   Using paints and sponges, we will decorate our own trout while talking about the rainbow,  browns, cuttbows, and cutthroat trout found in our river.
