Celebrating Nature as Seen Through the Eyes of Young Artists
As part of our 50th Anniversary celebrations, this spring the Harris Center invited children to create and share original art focused on animals, plants, or special natural places in the Monadnock Region. Although we can’t have an in-person exhibit this summer, we’re excited to share their creations with you virtually. Hover over the pictures to learn more about each piece. Thank you to our artists for sharing their love of nearby nature!
