Students at SFNC

The South Fork Nature Center’s outdoor classrooms are perfect stages for art enrichment activities. Students will gather at various areas of the Nature Center and participate in hands-on creation of tree and leaf structure, texture, and design drawings led by our very talented docents. Additional art programs such as watercolor landscape and natural walnut dye sketching may be arranged.
