In spring 2020, youth got in touch with their creative side through our Virtual Environmental and Nature Arts program! Check out the details of the program below!
In six weeks, you will express your thoughts, feelings, and voice through works of art and identify as an environmental artist. Learn how to design and create your own face covering, natural sculptures 2D and 3D models, and prints. Using the techniques of paper cutting, printmaking, and model building we will explore our connection with the natural world and our daily environments.
- Every Monday at 4pm a new activity will be posted to the portal
- Every Thursday from 4pm to 4:40pm, I’ll be hosting “Studio Hours” on Zoom to answer any questions about the project, and provide guidance and support. Please register through the link below to receive the “Studio Hours” Zoom link.
- Thursday June 25th 4pm to 5pm is YES Open Studios. You will be able to share your artwork with other YES youth and family artists.
- If you can’t make it to our event on June 25th, please take pictures of you and your work and send them to [email protected].
