Opening Reception – From the Schoolyard to the River Beach: A “Nature Girls” Art Exhibit with Strawtown Studio

3:00pm - 5:00pm | Teatown, 1600 Spring Valley Rd., Ossining, NY 10562, Teatown
Come see how art meets ecology!  Join us for the opening for a first-of-its-kind photo exhibit! Inspiring for children and adults alike, this exhibition highlights the discoveries and art creations of the “Nature Girls”, through the seasons and over the years.

“Nature Girls” is a Teatown education program that encourages girls to get out into nature, and develop an interest for natural science. For the past 6 years, Strawtown Studio artists/educators have been invited to bring their nature art education specialty to the “Nature Girls” program, both in summer camp and after school settings. 

“Combining art with natural materials and ecological science learning is fun and engaging, and it develops the 21st century skills of creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, personal expression and handwork—skills that are essential in our rapidly changing world”, said Joanna Dickey, Strawtown Studio’s Program Director. Adding the art component to environmental education also allows the STEM learning model to become STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math), a growing trend.

The nature art captured in this exhibit will further inspire the visitor to see the beauty of the Hudson Valley through a new artistic lens. 
 
Also, SAVE THE DATE, November 16th! Strawtown Studio will host a workshop open to the public! Time to be announced on our site shortly!
