An ARTISTIC, literary journey with Muggles the pony! April 27th, 2024


This is a very special workshop, indeed.  It's a literary journey combined with art!  What could be more amazing than learning about how a local cart-driving pony became the subject of a children's chapter book? PLUS these lucky kids get to meet both the adorable pony (Muggles) AND the author while learning about how to write a book and what, exactly, "pony driving" is!   

A story, mystery, art, and more!


"Muggles is a small pony with a big personality, big stomach, and big heart.  He is friends with all the animals at Whistle Hill Farm"... and we are SOOOO excited to welcome Muggles to our fun workshop!! 


We will be painting pictures of Muggles, learning about his animal friends at the farm, meeting the author of his book, decorating the cover of our very own book, making beaded bookmarks with pony charms, and learning about the cart that Muggles loves to pull.  Every participant will get to meet Muggles and will receive a signed copy of his book.  The author, Jamie Defazio Guiberson will be in person to answer any questions about Muggles and hopes to inspire children to read and write their own stories!  Of course, we will be pulling out all the stops with the paints as the kids allow their imagination to lead them to create a beautiful painting inspired by Muggles and his friends.  There will be 2 sessions to choose from with ages varying in each.  Older kids are always encouraged to work ahead and use the materials to create at a faster pace if they would like!

*Session 1 is from 10-12:30 (ages 5-11) 

*Session 2 is from 1:30-4:00 (ages 8-14)
