Quality Arts Programs with an Environmental Lens

Nature Consortium’s EcoARTs Program offers a unique blend of arts and environmental education for youth and adults in King County. Our classes foster discovery and creativity while connecting students with the natural world. Nature Consortium strives to enrich communities by providing access, exposure, and opportunity to quality arts programming where it’s needed most. We believe that everyone should have access to creative expression, a healthy environment, and pathways to excellence.

The EcoARTs Program offers lessons inspired by, made from, or created in nature.

We employ professional teaching artists who are passionate about their work. From visual art to gardening to music, our quality public and in-school programs augment student learning and expose them to artistic, environmental, and cultural experiences that enrich their lives. Nature Consortium’s EcoARTs curriculum is designed to increase students’ artistic skill, advance their environmental awareness, foster positive identity, and increase social competence.
