Art, Nature, and the EnvironmentFull, Waitlist Available

Age: 8 yrs. to 12 yrs.
Instructor: Jillian Swist

For centuries, artists have been influenced by nature. In this week, we will take a closer look at the big and small marvels we get to experience everyday, from tiny insects to mountain peaks. We will use our personal experiences and memories from our journeys in the outside world to create mixed media paintings and collages that explore the unique connection between art and nature. We will also practice looking closely

at the smaller, beautiful pieces of our world and use these observations to influence our drawings, paying attention to the color, textures, and patterns found in nature. We will create our artwork mindfully and act as curious observers of the natural world throughout the week! Students will present their work in a Student Art Show at the end of the week!


The Art, Nature and the Environment Student Art Show will be on Friday, August 9 at 2:30PM at PMAC.
