Artists throughout history have always been inspired by the beauty of nature. From fabric design to masterful paintings, nature has been a commonly explored genre within the arts. Fall is an especially beautiful season with its abundant colors and foliage. As Visual Art Educators, we draw, print, rub, cut, and design many nature inspired artworks with our students. I hope you can use the resources below!
