Where Art and Nature Meet: Elementary Camp Week One

Categories: General Knowledge Fund

This week in our Elementary Camp, the focus is on the intersection between Nature and Art.  On Tuesday, the campers traveled to the Peggy Notebaert Museum in Chicago to study wildlife displays, visit the butterfly garden, and learn about the many species of animals on display in the reptile and amphibian collections.


After spending the day at the museum and studying the exhibits, the students returned for a week filled with art and further research into the topics that inspired them.  Please enjoy the pictures below showing their visit and the subsequent work in the classroom this week.
