Cosmic Snow Sculpture
Discover the amazing art of snow sculpting! Join ArtisTree and Suicide Six ski resort for this outdoor class with snow sculpting experts. Our week-long theme is “outer space”: come build your own alien creature or spacecraft from preformed snow blocks using specialized tools and techniques. This program is located at Suicide Six and participant drop-off and pick-up are at the main ski lodge. Bring appropriate warm clothing as well as an extra pair of gloves.
** Campers who are joining a 1pm program at ArtisTree will be escorted to ArtisTree by the instructors. **
Note: In the event of rain, this program will run as an indoor sculpture class at ArtisTree. Please pack a snack. If your child is staying for an afternoon camp, please pack a lunch.
Register with ArtisTree for the snow sculpture program.

Lisa Kaija received her BA in Art History at Dartmouth College and her K-6 General Education/Visual Arts teaching certification through the Upper Valley Teacher Institute. During the last thirty years, she taught all subjects in grades K-4 and some subjects in grade 5-6 in various Upper Valley public and private schools. She has trained mid-life career changers to become teachers and raised five children with her husband, Kevin. Lisa revels in teaching art. The question she dodges most often is “Are you an artist?,” since she considers herself a teacher first and an artist second, and elementary art teachers need to know a little about a lot of different art forms. She thrives on challenges and enjoys being creative with people of any age.
