Nature of Art Camp 2023

***Registration Full***

Nature of Art is a camp like no other!

Nature of Art is a weeklong program offered in partnership with the UTSA School of Art. This art and science-based nature camp is held at Confluence Park where students can learn about nature and science through creative based practices led by local artists and educators.

Each day, students will learn about a different theme tied into the ecosystem of the river, park, and the communities we live in. Much of the day will be spent making artwork that reflects our interest in the natural world. We will use clay, fabric, and paint, work together and individually; learn to look and pay attention to things we may have overlooked before. Students should expect to spend time by the river, climbing, jumping, and walking outside.

Each day will have a full schedule with several art projects, writing or storytelling time, lunch, a time to play, and a discussion. On some days we will have an environmental or scientific ambassador come and share their knowledge with us. Our emphasis is on creating art and building art skills, stewarding our San Antonio River, creating a supportive and kind community, and expressing ourselves while learning by observation and imagination.
