Calling all Monarchs - Welcome the Butterflies with Song, Dance, and Art

  • The Porchistas home studio 148 Forest Street Montclair, NJ USA (map)

The Monarch butterflies are on their northern migration path and we are going to welcome them to Montclair with art, song and dance.

Make your own Monarch butterfly wings. We will provide the templates and you will paint them and add a safe shoulder holster so you can fly too!

Trina Paulus, author of Hope for the Flowers will discuss the message in her book and also demonstrate how to raise monarch caterpillars so you can help protect the species. 

The Porchistas Alan Smith and friends will perform some happy songs including the band's interpretation of 'Hope for the Flowers.'

All ages welcome. Agues 7 and up to paint wings. (Parents can paint the wings for their younger children.) Please contact Alan at to reserve a wings template.
