Painting with Nature 5/16/2021 at 2:30 PM

Sunday May 16

2:30 PM  –  4:00 PM

Preregistration required. Designed for adults and families with children ages 8 and up. 

Participants will meet at the Abner Hollow Pioneer Cabin at our Rowe Woods location. 

Capture spring colors on paper as we transform nature into art supplies. Amid the awakening forest, we’ll harvest color on a foraging hike, discover pigmented plant stories, and paint greeting cards with handmade inks and tools. 

Each registered participant will get one greeting card and envelope to paint with our handmade inks. Additional cards are available for purchase with cash for $2 each.

Important note: As this program will be meeting outdoors to ensure social distancing, it will be run as a “fair weather program.” Extreme weather like severe storms will cancel this program and a full refund will be offered. Nature Center staff will communicate the status of this program via email by 8 am on the morning of the event.


Where should I park? Participants are encouraged to park at the Abner Hollow Pioneer Cabin parking lot

Do I need to have painting skills to participate? You do not need any artistic skill to enjoy this program. We will have some options of coloring book style patterns for those who wish for a bit more guidance, and blank cards for anyone wanting to let their creativity drive them.

What to bring: Please bring your own mask. Whether indoors or outdoors, masks are required for all adults and children in Kindergarten through 12th grade at all Cincinnati Nature Center programs. Masks are to be worn outside when one cannot consistently be spaced 6 feet apart. Masks are also required to be worn while inside all facilities (for example, Rowe Visitor Center, restroom, etc.).

Members $9; nonmembers $14 (includes daily admission).
