Art in nature Camp

ART IN NATURE CAMP

Ages: 7-11
Where: FACE @Twelve Oaks, Ocean Springs
www.thefriendsoface.org/summer-camp-2022

Got an outdoors and art lover in your house? This art in nature camp could be a great option for them. They will gather objects from nature trails to use as drawing and painting tools, create eco prints using natural pigments from leaves and fruits, make handmade paper, hike the nature trails, and keep a (provided) sketchbook inspired by the world around us. A fantastic (and fun!)  way to integrate the local flora and fauna into art education.
