Quality Programming with an Environmental Lens

DNDA'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 participants with the natural world. EcoArts is a unique model for arts-based environmental education; classes take place both indoors and outdoors in the forest. Lessons are inspired by, made from, or created in nature. Our curriculum is designed to increase artistic skill, advance environmental awareness, foster positive identity, and increase social competence. EcoArts programming helps participants connect with their natural environment and explore their creativity.

FUSION SPRING NATURE CAMP

The combination of Art, Nature, and Neighborhood play a big role in our annual EcoArts Fusion Spring Nature Camp at Camp Long. Local youth from Seattle Housing Authority’s (SHA) High Point housing site, ranging from ages 7 to 12, joined DNDA during their spring break to enjoy a memorable weekend outdoors, creating nature-inspired works of art and connecting with our local environment.
