Through visits to our Native Butterfly House and time with our entomologist, students will illustrate what they learn by creating a poster as a finished product. Participants will learn how to use color and design to create a visually pleasing piece using mediums such as graphite, colored pencils, acrylic markers, watercolor pencils, and pens.
