All it takes is a starter set of chalk pastels, construction paper (or your nature journal!) and Nana’s video art lessons to capture the beauty of nature in your very own backyard! No expensive, intimidating list of art supplies. Backyard Nature is a wonderful stand alone art curriculum or a perfect complement to your nature study learning.
