ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Portrait and Landscape Painters; Past and Present
Get inspired as you study portrait and landscape artists of the past and present. Through personal story and demonstration, learn from a nationally renown artist couple about drawing, light and shadow, and composition, before joining us on a field trip to a studio to see works first hand.

Contemporary Poets
Join us as we discover contemporary poets, both famous and less well known, whose work has benefitted from the master, Robert Frost. Learn what to look for and think about when reading poems by Mary Oliver, Maxine Kumin, Ruth Stone, and others.

The Challenge and Fun of Puzzle-Solving
Explore the complexities of Crosswords, Acrostics, Puns and Anagrams, and more. Led by a NY Times puzzle constructor, learn the “rules,” time-tested strategies and tips to help you solve these puzzles. Sessions are hands-on all ending with high fives!

Activity Notes
