This past weekend I had the pleasure of instructing a visual arts track at Upham Woods to about 60 4-H members that are in grades 3rd-5th grade.  In honor of the 75th Anniversary of Upham Woods and the Upham Sisters that donated the 315 acres of land to the UW Extension to preserve the land as an educational format  so future generations of children  so they could experience nature and learn through the Wisconsin State and County 4-H programs.   The visual art track offered information about Elizabeth and Caroline Upham and explained why the metal sculptures related to Elizabeth Uphams artistic talents creating with metals and the stone slabs that the campers used as a base is connected with Caroline Upham because of her and her fathers expertise in geology.  The photographs I’m posting today depict a fraction of the activities, experiences and artwork created by our guest campers attending the 2016 4-H Art Beat 4-H Camp Program  this past  weekend.

Thank you to the parents and campers that had taken the time to write a thank you letter to the Upham family members for their donation of property and their continued support to Upham Woods.  If you would like to write a thank you letter please contact me.  There is still time to write a thank you letter to the Upham family members.
