BASKING RIDGE – Nature Through a Child’s Eyes, a children’s art show with an environmental theme, will be on exhibit at the Somerset County Park Commission Environmental Education Center at 190 Lord Stirling Road in Basking Ridge. The show runs from Tuesday, January 3 through Monday, February 27, 2012, every day except major holidays from 9:00 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. Admission is free.
Over 300 pieces of art have been created by Somerset County kindergarten through sixth grade students. The works communicate their views of nature and the environment though application of textures, shapes and colors. Adults and children alike will enjoy exploring the creative minds of Somerset County school children.
Past projects have included fall leaves printed with tempera, nature landscapes in pastels, and impressions of trees, all of which demonstrate the children’s relationship with nature.
The Environmental Education Center offers a wealth of entertainment opportunities for the entire family including the Environmental Library and Store, trails through the Great Swamp, Maple Sugaring and a full calendar of special events.
