Our year-round EcoArts environmental and art education program, provides artistic, cultural, and environmental programming in SW Seattle. EcoArts programming includes summer and school break camp classes, after-school classes, and outdoor classes. EcoArts is a unique model for arts-based environmental education; classes take place both indoors in art lessons and outdoors in the forest. Lessons are inspired by, made from, or created in nature. Our curriculum is designed to increase students' artistic skill, advance environmental awareness, foster positive identity, and increase social competence. EcoArts helps youth explore and connect to their natural environment and their creativity.
FUSION SPRING NATURE CAMP
Screaming and laughing as loud as they could, the children from DNDA and SHA’s High Point living in subsidized public housing spent a week running through Camp Long, exploring Seattle's only urban campground. The 16 kids that participated in DNDA's Spring FUSION Camp spent the whole week outdoors. This Spring FUSION Camp aims to put DNDA and SHA residents into nature for a week and to show them their creative potential through art.
