2023 Summer Program

There are too many dragons to remember. Dragons come from all cultures. Do all dragons fly? No! Do all dragons talk? Some do, and some tell clever riddles. Are all dragons dangerous? Not at all.

Some live alongside humans and bless them with many treasures while others live in solitude. Together we can create Dragons from all walks of life. Construct a Dancing Chinese Dragon which follows a Pearl of Wisdom and grants people their wishes of rain and good fortune. Construct a dragon that has a magical stone that gives it powers. Construct a dragon that really flies. Construct your very own wings so you too can fly like a dragon. Then take bits and pieces of all the dragon stories you have heard plus scraps of cloth, wood, and wire to invent your very own dragon.
