Art and Nature: Leighton Art Centre
This program combines exploring art in the Leighton Art Centre’s museum with hands-on art lessons in our historic art studios. Here at Leighton, nature is our inspiration, our classroom and our playground.

Suitable for Grades 1-6. Younger siblings are welcome if they are supervised and walking the property, but not in the art studio. We do need at least 2 or 3 parent volunteers to stay with the group. Other parents are free to walk and visit with each other on the property. Or drop off and go
Chaperones are free and have the option of paying $5.00 cash to complete the main project.
Please bring a packed lunch. There are no stores or cafeterias in the area. You will have to take any trash from lunches back with you (we can provide you with plastic bags). We are not responsible for lost items.
Please dress appropriately for the weather. The LAC is a rural site that is often colder and wetter than the city. The nature hike will be over uneven ground that can be muddy or snowy. We highly recommend wearing multiple layers, hats, mittens.
