Nature Inspired Art

Students will explore the natural world and use their observations to create a work of art. Recognizing cycles and the living organisms that make up an ecosystem is important to truly appreciate the world around us. We will create written art and visual art in this session.

Grades K – 2: April 9 (12:00 pm – 1:30 pm)
Grades 3 – 6: April 11 (12:00 pm – 1:30pm)
