Inspired by the art of exhibiting artist, Laura Barrett, students will create original art using imagination and the natural resources based on the idea that “art is all around us and free for the seeing”. They will engage in learning by observing and making art inspired by nature. Our time together will be spent between the museum’s classroom and galleries as well as Greenough Park.
Students will spend time in the creek, listening to the sounds of animals and water, observing shapes and textures within nature to create original works of art.
Please bring water shoes, a hat, water bottle, sunblock and a small lunch to eat at the creek. A backpack is recommended to facilitate transportation to the park.
