The youth attending CityArts
come from Providence’s inner-city
communities where they lack access
to the beauty of our natural world.
The Art and Nature Studio aims
to bring nature to Providence
youth, beginning an essential bond
between our environment and the
arts. The studio, an engaging space
housing specimens from all walks of life, utilizes hands-on interaction,
investigation and participation to provide outlets for a range of learning
styles, talents and interests. It is an opportunity for the kids to learn from
their natural world, to develop an understanding of our living planet, and
to become life-long advocates for the environment.
