EnviroArt Lessons

EnviroArt Lessons Now Available


EnviroArt lessons show artists about personal choices we can make to protect our environment while creating a personal piece of art.


Lesson topics and media vary by project.


Every project introduces and examines environmental messaging and art standards.
