    Artful Nature Mapping: X marks the spot where we find natural treasures! Mapping habitats along the Chattahoochee River, we’ll study the features of the landscape, inspiring thoughtful art in both two and three dimensions. Young artists ages 8-12 will have the opportunity to observe nature up close, draw all different kinds of birds, and create a mixed media meadow in autumn. Instructor: Christy Knight, space is limited! All supplies included.

      $15 per student

      Scholarships are available.  Please contact Corina Newsome for details (corina.newsome@georgiaaudubon.org).
