April 1–29: Playful Puppet—Get ready for the annual Puppet Festival by creating your own puppet out of recycled and repurposed materials. What story will your puppet tell?

Saturdays and Sundays, May 6–28: Sounds of Peace—Inspired by Paul Simon: Words & Music, let your voice be heard by creating a unique musical instrument.

Saturdays and Sundays, June 3–11: Skirball Succulent Society—Join the club! Plant your very own drought-resistant succulent and design a colorful pinwheel.

Tuesday–Sunday, June 13–25: Endangered Animal Sculptures—Using recycled and repurposed materials, create a unique sculpture of an endangered animal from anywhere in the world.

Tuesday–Sunday, June 27–July 9: Song Books—Channel the creativity of Paul Simon, and collage a book of words and music. Then dedicate it to a cause that you feel passionate about.
