Spring: The Art of Nature
March 26, 2019 – March 29, 2019
What better time than spring to ramble and enjoy the artistic wonders of landscape, plant life and animal diversity in the Smokies? Students should bring to class a camera, cell phone and sketch pad to record some of nature’s finest art forms for further study that include wildflowers, trees, and maybe a bear or two. You will learn about critters and the forest while making like-minded friends. Open to all skill levels and prepare to hike a few trails to see it all.
COURSE FEE: $435
