A monthly subscription that will give you everything you need to make art and nature study a FUN and DOABLE part of your family’s life!

Imagine a home where creativity and love for nature is intentionally valued.  Where connections are made as you sit around the table together, painting and learning.


You know the benefits of learning through art.  You want your kids to learn about nature in an intentional way that is engaging and fun. BUT the time needed for prep and the clean up just doesn’t seem worth it. And really, when you do get a minute, you don’t know where to start.


With your membership to the Nature’s Art Club, you get the framework and support you need so your family can get to the fun part: painting and learning about art and nature at home. 

No planning and no searching for the perfect project to get your kids engaged. It’s all here, ready for you to use, designed so that making art and precious memories with your family will feel fun and effortless.

With the right tools at your fingertips, connecting with your kids through art and nature has never been easier. 



The days are busy and long and you feel EXHAUSTED. You want to include art and nature study into your day but there never seems to be enough time.


Trying to find age-appropriate projects plus planning a lesson around an art project feels OVERWHELMING! There are so many ways to go, you just don't know where to start.


Gathering and organizing supplies feels like a COMPLICATED task. Not to mention that it feels like a huge mess to clean up afterwards.


Nature’s Art Club is designed to take all of the stress about making art with your family away, so that you won’t feel exhausted or overwhelmed. We provide you with the exact list of simple supplies you’ll need for every project. The list doesn’t change so you’ll be able to use the same supplies over and over again each month. We even provided you with no-mess options for those days when you don’t want to deal with paint. Plus, we give you tips to make clean-up easier.


  • Obstacle #1
    Your own self-doubt and fear of failure shouldn't stop you from teaching your children about art, but usually does. You don't have to be a master painter or an expert about the natural world! Nature's Art Club gives you the tutorials and educational materials you need to get better at art and nature study right along with your kids.
  • Obstacle #2
    The time it takes to research and come up with ideas for your kids feels overwhelming. Nature's Art Club is an "open and go" style curriculum. We have curated everything for you so you can be successful. Each month you'll get watercolor painting tutorials, educational lessons, video resources, heart-warming poetry, and prompting questions to keep you and your children thinking and learning.
  • Obstacle #3
    Ultimately, it's the setup and clean-up that stop you from starting. Finding the right supplies, organizing the supplies, and cleaning up the mess after, feels like too much. Nature's Art Club gives you the exact list of supplies you'll need for all projects each month (bonus, you'll reuse them every single month!) Plus, we've provided you with mess-free options and super simple tips to help you keep art time stress-free without taking away your children's innate creativity.

What kind of art supplies will I need to get?

We’ve spent months researching the best supplies at the best price point. When you subscribe, you will have access to the list complete with links for your convenience.  To do the watercolor projects, you will only need to buy a small watercolor paint set, two brushes, watercolor paper and an optional pen.  Every project will use the same supplies every time so you won’t have to keep buying more!  

Can I use this with my whole family?

Yes!  Each membership to the Nature’s Art Club is intended for one subscription per family.  Simply login to the Nature’s Art Club on Teachable and begin to walk through the watercolor painting lesson with your kids, print out the additional materials, or learn more from the educational content provided.

What age group is this for?

The Nature’s Art Club can be adapted for all ages and stages!  When creating this product we tried to imagine a mother sitting with her children around the kitchen table.  The mother we imagined has an 11 year old daughter who really wants to learn to watercolor but  also a 5 year old who would rather color with crayons. She can decide to join in or to just let each child do their own thing.  All of the items provided in the subscription can satisfy the needs of children at different stages of life – even teenagers (watercolor tutorials, templates to trace, coloring pages, etc.).  She can also ask a child to share some of the fun facts that are included, they can watch the video links provided or they can all read the included nature poem together.

What kind of support will I get?

You will automatically get access to the Nature’s Art Club private Facebook group.  Here you can ask questions, post discoveries and share with the community.  You can also always reach out to us via email if you have any pressing questions or concerns.

Can I use this with a class of students?

Yes – we would love for you to use this with a class!!  There are pricing plans available for small, medium, and large groups.  Small groups are one login access for use up to 5 families.  Medium groups are one login access for use up to 15 families.  Large groups are one login access for use up to 30 families.  Your purchase is a one-time payment for 12-months of curriculum access from September 2019 to August 2020.  The content is released each month in the Teachable course with downloads available of the content to be printed.  Each year you would purchase a new curriculum package as this is a not an auto renewal.  Please reach out to if you need more assistance and we can help you get access and get started.  This curriculum would be perfect for homeschooling co-ops and other homeschooling groups.  Pricing information is available here:

LT Bugs Nature's Art Club

B. Bugs Anderson is a recovering lawyer who has loved writing poems and short stories for many years. “Bugs” is a nickname that came from a time in the 1950s when everyone had one, e.g. Wally, Dobie, Jughead, Fonzie and Opie. Since making up his first poem in the third grade, B. Bugs has loved the beauty, absurdity, humor, wonder and profundity that can be expressed in a few, well-chosen words. Now, as part of the Lily & Thistle team, he gets to indulge in something he has dreamed of doing for decades. 


Julie is our left brain here at Nature’s Art Club. She keeps us organized and makes sure you get everything you need each and every month.  She’s a creative at heart though and looks forward to getting better at watercolor and experiencing nature in a new way with her two little girls.
