Artists literally use nature to create their works, whether from wood, charcoal, graphite, clay, mixed pigments, or water. Connect with the Discovery Center for a 45-minute virtual presentation as we explore the art of nature. This Virtual Field Trip is adaptable for students PreK through 8th grade.
