Arts & Environment Classes

Unlike traditional studio art classes, The Umbrella Arts & Environment educational programs focus on looking outside of the classroom to cultivate an awareness of the natural world. Through exercises in observation, experimentation and invention, participants grow to appreciate nature’s infinite variety of colors, textures, volume and material, and to view it as both a refuge and a source of inspiration. These programs are a wonderful complement to all studio classes, as well as our seasonally themed Wild Walks.
