Kids enjoy art, nature at the Marion Natural History Museum

Oct 16, 2017

To the Editor:

The Marion Natural History Museum's after school group wishes to thank Tricia Cassady for sharing her works and expertise with us Wednesday, Oct 11.

Tricia showed us some of her commissioned art pieces as well as other examples of nature journaling from various artists. Each student received a small sketchpad and were encouraged to take a close look at some of the plants, animals, and other natural objects that we see every day.

Several of the students used watercolors to depict their topic, while others used pencils and drew them. The museum hopes to offer a nature journaling program for adults this winter so please check the museum's website,, for more information.
