LUNA (Learning Urban Nature through Art), a free, after-school program for Larimer and East Liberty area youth (ages 8 – 12), launched in 2016. Students learned about the trees and plants best suited for their urban environment and shared what they learned with the community through painted banners and a planting guide coloring book. The 2016 program was based at the Kingsley Association in Larimer and was funded by a Remake Learning grant through The Sprout Fund. Our project partner along with the Kingsley Association was Penn State Center. For 2017, we will be offering a 3-session Saturday morning summer program, “Nature’s Patchwork” at the WSCC featuring art activities and techniques inspired by the shapes, colors, textures of the natural world.
