Naturally Inspired Art Workshop

  • Location: Illinois State Museum, Springfield, Springfield

1:00 pm to 4:00 pm

For centuries, artists have been creating works of art inspired by the natural world around them. On July 24 and 25, children in grades 1-5 (completed) are invited to a fun, summer mini-camp at the Illinois State Museum to learn more about these artists and how to create “naturally inspired” art. Activities will include collecting natural materials on a nature walk, making recycled, plantable paper greeting cards, decorating a bird feeder, and more. Both mini-camps will be taught by ISM Assistant Curator of Education Elizabeth Bazan.

Activities:
• Nature walk to collect natural materials for projects,
• Sun prints on photo-sensitive paper,
• Paper clay leaf pendants,
• Decorate a platform bird feeder,
• Plantable pulp greeting card,
• Create 3D water lilies.

Register early for a discounted rate!
Advanced registration for this 2-day mini-camp is required by Sunday, July 20. The early registration cost is $35 for members and $45 for non-members by July 9. Registration after July 9 is $40 for members and $50 for non-members. Register at bit.ly/natinspire1-2 or call Elizabeth Bazan at 217-782-5993.
