Art in Nature

“Art in Nature” Activities Connect Kids to the Nature

Students discover the connection between art and nature with engaging outdoor and indoor (with inclement weather) activities that inspire environmental stewardship and an appreciation for nature. Activities include various art and culture workshops ranging from crafts, collage, theater, music and video – all focused on experiencing nature through various artistic mediums and cultures.

Our Art in Nature project is in partnership with the Burien King County Library and Burien Arts.  We provide volunteers for face painting at the outdoor Arts-A-Glow Festival in September which is held in the forest near the Dottie Harper Park on SW 146th St, Burien.  No artistic talent is required to volunteer and help at this event.  We’ll teach you the basics for face painting to help celebrate this fun, fabulous event in the forest!
