Explore nature and unleash your creative talents - Session 3
Event Types > Community Events > Youth Event
In July, Leach Botanical Garden will be transformed into a self-contained art studio and scientific laboratory for summer day campers ages 9 - 12. The Garden's diversity of plant and animal species, various micro-climates and intriguing geologic clues to the past, makes possible an array of hands-on natural science experiences.
While exploring the Garden, campers will fine-tune their observation and recording skills. This up-close exploration of the natural world - the colors of an insect's wing, erosion patterns in stone, the composition of a flower - will inspire a wide range of artistic endeavors including painting, botanical illustration, print-making, ceramics, and basketry. Of course, there will also be plenty of time for music and games. Activities change each week.
FEE: $210 per camper. MAXIMUM # OF PARTICIPANTS: 20
Art in Nature Camp is directed by Jane Nash and Thomas McCarley, Portland artists and teachers.
