Throughout the year, the ART+BIO Collaborative offers Field Studies of
Art+Nature, educational travel programs that are designed for artists,
scientists, students, educators, professionals and anyone interested in
integrating nature, art, and biology.

There are two Art+Science opportunities this May and August!

ISLAND LIFE: Tropical Field Studies of Art+Nature in Puerto Rico is a hands-on, immersive, and project-based program that integrates biology and art in the field, at various environments in Puerto Rico. The focus of the program is to learn about Puerto Rico’s diverse wildlife through artmaking and field biology. We travel to rainforests, dry forests, beach, coastal, coral reef, mangrove, and mountain environments. The program involves multiple site-specific projects that integrate creativity, art and biology.
Dates: May 17-22, 2017

DESERT LIFE: Field Studies of Art+Nature in the Southwest is similar to ISLAND LIFE, except we camp at various sites in west Texas and southwest New Mexico during the program. The program provides an immersive experience of the unique beauty and diverse environments of the desert, such as white sand dunes, black lava rocks, mountain caves, and riparian habitats.
