NAI Conference Session: Planning & Implementing an Art of Nature Camp

I'm presenting a program at the National Association for Interpretation 2019 conference this fall in Denver: Planning and Implementing an Art of Nature Camp. Session presenter Pam Roth O’Mara says, “the goal was to create an outdoor program that allowed young participants to observe, experience, and express nature as artists.” Developed and team-taught by visual artists and interpreters, Carol Peterson and Pam Roth O’Mara, the Art of Nature, a one-day camp (typically 10:00am – 2:30pm) for kids (age 9-13) guides participants through four different areas of an outdoor environment. While hiking around a park or nature center, participants are taught how to observe nature in artistic terms, such as color variance and physical perspective; and express their observations via images (drawing, sketching) and words (short stories, haiku, thumbprint plays). They share their experiences and artwork with their classmates and bring home a journal to share with their friends and families. The i…

Art supply "garage sale" happening now

From Lauren Scheller as seen on Facebook:

"Hi ACC artists! I graduated from the University of Arizona Fine Arts program a few years back, and now I severely need to downsize... This includes a lot of my supplies, canvases (used but easy to paint over, both purchased and handmade), art history books, painting guides, animation resources, and multitide of media and some paper varieties, as well as original art I can't keep but can't throw away. I'm having a garage sale next weekend Saturday and Sunday just up the road from the campus (Broadway and Caley), but would like to sell my supplies to students as first dibs, because I know how cherished materials, even used ones, were in my time at school. No one thing is over 10$ a piece. Please text me at 520-869-1285 if you're interested or if you want pictures of what I have, or if you'd like to ask if I have something specific. EVERYTHING must go, unfortunately. Let me know if I can help! Please feel free to give my …
