NATURE AT YOUR FINGERTIPS!

Discovery, art-making, and skill-building made easy.

Inside the NatureArt Box is everything you need for creative adventuring!

  • Over 30 high-quality artist and naturalist materials in a water-resistant travel box, from watercolors, pencils, brushes and paper, to wool felt, modeling clay and colorful beeswax, from strings and craft wire to plant ID shapes and a magnifying glass – plus a few surprises too!
  • Illustrated Activity Booklet with over 80 hands-on nature art experiences that can take 5 minutes, 1 hour, or lead to a whole day of discovery.
  • The packing list of materials in the box, plus a list of recommended materials from home.
  • The NatureArt Adventure Box Program brings the whole family together!

    “The program was so well-planned and thought out. I loved the breakout rooms. Strawtown was extremely generous with the art box and all the resource materials and social media outlets. You thought of everything!” – Michele S., participant

    Parent/Caregiver Participation (for children under 9):
    The art box program will be most successful with adult participation for materials handling, activity preparation, and virtual workshops. With most children, once they learn the skills and materials, they can keep going with their own ideas in a self-guided happy way.

    Virtual Workshops held on Zoom: You will need access to a device that is connected to Wifi. The sessions will be recorded. If you prefer not to be in view during the session you are welcomed to turn off your video camera feature.

    “The projects were very new to us and things we never would have considered on our own. We appreciate that we can expand from the box to create more activities. The box itself was incredible!”
