A caterpillar from crabgrass? A leaf that’s really a moth? A forest in a box?
This isn’t your typical summer camp. You’ll discover all the fun to be had at the crossroads of nature and art. A typical day at Drawing from Nature might include a walk on the 12-acre site, learning about the rare plants, abundant wildlife, and all manner of critters. You’ll preserve your memories by drawing and painting them – all skill levels welcome! You may design dioramas of the landscape. Meantime you will be learning drawing and painting techniques, learning about nature’s bounty, developing individual and group presentation skills, and getting a good taste of the wonderful outdoors.
CraftWorks is so pleased to have camp leader Clark Dixon, who spent his first career with the National Park Service involved with numerous youth activities. Clark currently serves as a substitute teacher in Jefferson County. He is also an accomplished artist whose work has been in juried shows. Register soon!More Information
