Clever Octopus Art Camp

In Summer 2017, we partnered for the first time with Clever Octopus to bring their Octopod to Murray City parks!

Clever Octopus is an organization dedicated to fostering creativity and environmental awareness through art, science, technology, engineering, and math. Their "Octopod Mobile Outreach Vehicle" is a fully-equipped mobile classroom, stocked with materials for creative exploration and staffed by Clever Octopus's artists.
