Join the Texas Children in Nature network at the annual Summit and Champions Luncheon. The Summit will bring together leaders from the conservation, education, health, faith and built-environments to share best practices and new innovations that will inspire others to take action.

Texas Children in Nature (TCiN) is a program of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. TCiN supports the network of over 500 partner organizations who are dedicated to creating equitble access to nature for children and families. Research shows that children who learn and play in nature are healthier, happier and smarter. Join us this year at the Summit and find out why Texas continues to lead the children in nature movement to connect over 3 million children with nature each year.

In our fast paced world it is rare that we take a moment to slow down and truly appreciate the beauty around us.  During this hands-on session participants will take time to examine the natural world and learn how to use a variety of art mediums including watercolor painting, pencil drawing, nature journaling, print making and digital photography to capture the moment.  This session is designed as an outside watercolor program.   Participants will leave the session with a postcard watercolor painting.  Our painting session begins with a line drawing defining the horizon line and a few natural elements that we observe around us such as flowers, trees, grass or water.  We will use watercolor painting techniques such as dry brush, wet graded wash, wet-in-wet watercolor technique, flat color wash and lifting excess paint off the picture to create our 10 minute postcard.  Using this process participants leave with a memento of their time in a park or natural area.  This is a great activity for families and youth programs.
