Mighty Naturalist Program; Nature Painting and Textures Art Class

December 16, 2022 @ 9:30 AM - 10:45 AM

Nature Painting and Textures Art Class is for children ages 1-5 years old attending with an adult caregiver.

Program Description:  Nature art in different forms, and the one we will experiment with is textures using simple natural items, Play-Doh, paint, and crayons. Let’s look around to see what textures we can find in the natural world, then we’ll collect a variety of items to take back to the classroom to experiment and discover the fascinating impressions and designs with nature’s stampers.

This is the perfect time to make and gift original artwork to someone special.

Fee per Program: $8 per child ($5 Dahlem member); free for adult caregiver & infants.  Additional children older than 5 years are charged the program fee.

Advanced Registration Required. Please register online at or call 517-782-3453 to reserve your spot for you and your mighty naturalist(s). Payment due upon registration. Registered participants who did not attend program and/or give minimum 24 hour cancellation notice will not be refunded.

Share your love of nature with your young child(ren). We will explore and play with nature while developing critical early childhood skills and growing self-confidence. The Mighty Naturalist Programs are geared toward children 5 years and younger with an adult caregiver to learn about animals, winter survival, birds, tracks, and more. Each program offers a different theme and activities to give you and your mighty naturalist many program opportunities. Invite your friends to sign up, too.
