Students at Tender Years Camp Hill recently put their creativity on display at Wildwood Park’s Art In The Wild exhibit! Led by our teachers, Carol A. Lauver, Kim Spradley, and Mary Freeman, the artwork was a collaborative effort that included three classes at Tender Years: Pre-K, Kindergarten, and after-school students.
Titled “Babbling Brook”, the entry showcases the students’ and teachers’ conception of movement as interpreted with fish and air bubbles. The entire exhibit displays movement, from the air bubbles to within each individual fish (dangling seashells, woven yarn).
Natural materials were used to create the piece, including bamboo, seashells, jute, plant dyes, and natural fiber yarns. While our teachers constructed the fish and air bubbles, students decorated the fish. The installation was then attached to tree branches dangling over the water.

Last year’s project was a wonderful learning experience for both our students and teachers. The children had an opportunity to visit the exhibit as a summer camp excursion, and many also visited with their families.
We hope you’ll visit the exhibit to see what our students have created! The Art In The Wild exhibit at Wildwood Park in Dauphin County (100 Wildwood Park Way, Harrisburg) is open from April 9 through October 31. The exhibit is located along the environmental center’s nature trail, and it’s absolutely FREE! For more information on this year’s exhibit, CLICK HERE.
