Want to explore your creative side without giving up your summer vacation? Then come to the Naturally Artistic themed Art Camp! We’ll go on hikes and spend time learning to use our talents and imagination while being environmentally friendly. Art Camps meet every other Thursday from 9-noon.

Week 1- Naturally Artistic
9 a.m.-noon on June 13
Sometimes nature is more beautiful than anything we can create so we will use nature’s own supplies to make a piece of art. Join us to take part in creating mosaic coasters using pressed flowers and leaves. The children will also get to take home a flower press! Reservations Required. Fee $20. Meet at Rock Springs Nature Center.

Week 2- Personalized Flower Pots
9a.m.-noon on June 27
Paint a flower pot using a drip-painting technique or hand paint it with brushes. Then learn all about native species you can plant in your garden, and pot a plant to take home in your very own personalized flowerpot! Reservations Required. Fee $20. Meet at Rock Springs Nature Center.

Week 3- Anything out of Everything
9a.m.-noon on July 11

Anything can become a piece of art with the right imagination behind it. Test the power of your imagination by creating a perfect piece of art from recycled and reused goods. The options are limitless! Reservations Required. Fee $20. Meet at Rock Springs Nature Center.

Week 4- Wearable Nature
9 a.m. - noon on July 25

Each year we end our Art Camp with creating Natural Tie-Dye shirts using natural dyes that are environmentally friendly. Join us as we dip T-shirts into bright colors that have been used throughout history to dye clothing! Please provide at least one pre-washed t-shirt made of 100% cotton (check the tags). We must have your t-shirt at least two weeks in advance of camp so that it can be treated for the dye process. Fee $20, Reservations Required. Meets at Rock Springs Nature Center.
