The Institute of EcoTourism
Bear Wallow Art Camp
Created:  Saturday, July 21, 2007
Updated:  Saturday, October 20, 2007
Recently we had the opportunity to work with Bear Wallow Art Camp students ranging in age from 6 – 11 years old. Bear Wallow Director, Nancy Dunst brought 13 budding artists to our Eco Arts & Crafts program. Bear Wallow - IET Gallery
Together we made red dirt play-dough and corn mosaic, recycle vessels, corn mosaic medallions, eco footprints, potato fabric prints and painted hand cast original southwest critter mini sculptures. 
Along with the southwest critter sculpture we took the time to review the lifestyles of each critter and the children developed haiku poetry for each piece.
