Teacher Workshop: Art in Nature + Natural Phenomena

Explore art that responds to nature, including the new installation Canopy Tower by artist John Grade. We will focus on the world around us to create a work of art with local artist Shalena White inspired by natural phenomena and the many site-specific works at the Betty and Edward Marcus Sculpture Park at Laguna Gloria.
