Art for the Earth Youth Workshop

tree crafted our of flowers, leaves and crafting gems

Embark on a creative journey in nature with the “Youth Art for the Earth” series—dynamic, eco-centric art experiences crafted for middle and high school students. In these sessions, young artists are encouraged to channel their innermost reflections and establish deep connections with the natural world through the powerful language of art.

The workshops encompass outdoor exploration, indoor collage-making, and dedicated time for reflection and sharing. We believe that developing personal ties to the land fosters a sense of place, care for the environment, and mutual consideration.

Middle and high school youth are invited to participate in one of four Youth Art for the Earth workshops, the completed artworks of which will be displayed during MBGNA’s Youth Art exhibition. These workshops will be offered at no cost, with all necessary materials provided.  Please note that registration is required.

The completed artworks will be on display during MBGNA’s Youth Art exhibit, running from Saturday, April 20, to Sunday, June 2, 2024. A reception for artists, families, and friends is scheduled for Sunday, June 2, from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM in the west lobby.
