Nature Art for Kids


Mucky Puppies.

Mucky puppies offers creative art space for children age 4-16. We work on different fun, colorful and occasionally edible art projects. We create environmentally friendly art pieces and love to use art to raise consciousness! and help each other! and endangered animals! And lots of other things!

Themes and projects arise as a collaboration of interests -so please come with your ideas too. Past themes have included:

  • Visioning boards
  • Nature photography
  • Crafting Flower Fairies
  • Outdoor art installations
  • ‘Turn it over’ worry boxes
  • Seasonal/holiday art
  • Imaginary landscapes and mythical beings
  • Creating narratives and fun and quirk-some (now officially a word) illustrated stories, characters and images
  • Fruit carvings and decorated cookies
  • Super hero’s and archetypes
  • Mud pies
  • Activism using art (for example animal rights or social and environmental justice issues)
  • Creating paintings or art exploring themes and emotions such as grief, friendship, fun, love, home, etc.

 We offer groups or one to one sessions. Groups are currently held in Eldorado Springs and in central Boulder, two blocks from Pearl and Broadway, in the art room at the First Congregational Church 1128 Pine Street, Boulder, CO 80302. (SW corner Pine and Broadway).
