Environmental Art is a growing field in the visual arts and is a great way to connect with our natural world while also being creative and having fun outside!

Participants will be making several environmental works of art by utilizing natural elements near their homes while also learning about the growing field of environmental art. Then, there will be a second group conversation with the teachers and all available participants at the end of the festival. No experience necessary and all ages welcome!

Registration for this workshop is closed.
