Native and Nature Ways Summer Camp in Birmingham, Alabama
With the Ruffner Mountain Nature Preserve
Organizer: Shasha Mccracken
Title: “Kids Need Green”
Dream Theme: Conservation/Nature/Animals
Materials & Techniques Used: We used fabric paints to draw ourselves hiking on the mountain. We glued leftover fabric to look like the mountain. We trimmed our piece with ribbon.
What is your group’s artwork about? “We wanted everyone to know that we love the outdoors and we think it is important to have time to play and enjoy the outdoors and nature while growing up. We come to camp at Ruffner Mountain to hike, play, and learn outdoors. We think that every kid deserves and needs the opportunity to explore and play outside every day.”
