LUNA is Learning Urban Nature through Art

We provide ecoliteracy and art programs partnering with schools, community centers, and environmental organizations. We design programs that connect kids, families, and communities to nature through art.

The Program

 

We design and deliver programs that foreground art and the life sciences (e.g., ecology, biology, botany). We emphasize hands-on skills to produce beautiful, community-enhancing outcomes.

Programs

  • Art: Drawing, Painting, Photography, Design

  • Ecology: Horticulture, Botany, Plant and Tree Identification

  • Stewardship: community engagement, native species importance, local green spaces

 

Outcomes

  • Painted banners displayed in community meeting places and exhibition venues

  • Community Planting Guide comprised of student plant research and drawings

  • Banner Blitz community painting events throughout the city

  • Specialized programming for community organizations

We can design ecoliteracy and art programs and workshops or a banner exhibition for your community or organization. Please contact us to discuss how we can meet your programming needs!

 

 

Did you know? The Luna Moth's wingspan can reach 4-1/2” and is only found in North America. The caterpillar feeds on the leaves of walnut, hickory, sweet gum, and paper birch trees before building a cocoon. After three weeks, it emerges as a moth and then only lives for a week. The moths are a favorite food for bats. The moth only flies at night and thus is called “luna” (moon).
