Creative Arts

This program offers youth the opportunity to experience many different art forms and learn various techniques with color, textures, natural elements, etc. Youth are also introduced to the cultural relevancy of the art form they are studying. Past workshops  have focused on wood carving, batiking, Ukrainian egg dying, Pinata decoration, tissue paper water color, making paper kites, and mosaics, to name a few.

Performing Arts

The performing arts program focuses on self-discovery and personal growth for those youth interested in performing arts and participating in fun stagecraft activities. The Show Biz Kids 4-H Club meets monthly and works on the following activities: Theater skills, story creations, music appreciation, artistic activities, costuming, leadership and performing opportunities.


The photography program provides workshops for youth that range from beginning photo composition to introduction to your camera to digital photography. Program activities include the opportunity to participate in photo shoots to such places as Deception Pass, the tulip fields in Skagit County and the Outback Kangaroo Farm, in classroom instruction and preparation techniques for exhibition.
For more information please contact our office.

Public Presentations

All 4-H members are encouraged to develop their skills in public speaking.  Most youth start by making a short presentation on a topic of their choice, with an audience of just a couple of people.  Feedback is provided, and members can advance to increasingly larger audiences and win awards, if they wish.
