Summer Art Camp: Art in Nature (Ages 9-12)

August 12, 2024 - August 16, 2024

5 Days

9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Taught by Andre Lee Bassuet

Art inspiration is everywhere in nature. Each day a new theme guides our hands-on experience for campers to create connections in the natural world and develop a deeper relationship through community and healing in nature. For campers who are attentive and curious, we will create nature experiences and develop our storytelling skills through printmaking and journaling.
