The Helen Schuler Nature Centre is proud to host Inspired by Nature — Youth Art Exhibition to celebrate the diverse creative talents of Alberta’s youth and their connection with nature.

 

Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Lethbridge East, the art exhibit will feature nature-inspired pieces in the community art gallery of the Helen Schuler Nature Centre. The exhibit will be open to the public September 11–November 4.
Alberta residents 18 years of age or younger are encouraged to head outside to explore and tap into nature’s muse. Through art, photography, videography, music or writing, youth can express their connection with the natural environment and help to inspire a deeper appreciation for the outdoors.
“We’re excited to see what discoveries our young artists make,” says Curtis Goodman, Resource Development Coordinator with the Helen Schuler Nature Centre. “Spending time in nature has so many benefits, like inspiring curiosity and new ideas. We’re hoping that through creative self-expression, youth will proudly let their discoveries shine in the community.”
On October 30, 2018, a gallery closing reception will be held at the Helen Schuler Nature Centre to recognize the amazing artistry in the Inspired by Nature — Youth Art Exhibition; this event will include prizes for Best in Show as decided by a judging panel from the Rotary Club of Lethbridge East.
