You know how important it is to get your children out in nature and you know the benefits of learning through art but the thought of actually doing it feels overwhelming.
You’re tired of spending hours trying to piece together your own nature study curriculum and you feel like you need to be an artist or some kind of expert to start.
You wish someone would just tell you exactly what you need, how to make it happen without a huge mess, and guide your family through each step.
What if you were able to sit down with your children TODAY and create beautiful works of art while effortlessly learning about nature?
Imagine that instead of spending hours researching curriculum, you could dive right into a resource that keeps ALL of your kids active, happy, and engaged. No matter the age.
Imagine feeling calm and open to connecting with your children as you sit together in nature and create art… without worrying about a huge mess or searching for the perfect project.
You can learn and grow in both ART and NATURE STUDY and I can help!
As a mom of four littles, I know how overwhelming life can be and how many things beg for our attention. But, I've also seen the real difference studying nature and art has had on each of my children's (not to mention, my own) happiness.
I want to make it EASY for you to experience this for yourself. I want to give you EVERYTHING you need to make art and nature time a success in your home. It is truly my heart and my passion!
I know there can be a lot of questions, especially if you are completely new to this. My team and I have tried to think of everything to make your time together in nature a success! Here’s what we have for you…

Life AFTER joining Nature’s Art Club:
Our video tutorials for painting 24+ subjects from nature include a watercolor template to use for tracing onto your watercolor paper. This way you can get right to painting without having to worry about the separate skill of drawing.
We are offering basic drawing lessons with an emphasis on drawing objects in nature! Hannah will take you step-by-step through the drawing journey and give you tools to help you and your children feel successful and proud. Anyone can draw, let us show you how!
Featuring our new author, and nature biologist, Anna Stunkel, we are offering colored pencil tutorials. Anna will take you step-by-step through colored pencil lessons to create your own vibrant drawings. It will help you all to take your drawing skills to the next level and connect with nature through art.
Nature journaling is a powerful tool for both scientific and self discovery! You can give your children (and yourself!) the gift of seeing the world in a new and beautiful way. Hannah has taught in-person nature journaling classes to hundreds of children and adults. She helps simplify nature study and will show you how to get even the most reluctant child excited about getting out to explore and record the natural world around them.
One of the best ways to get kids (and adults) into nature is to make it a game! The Nature's Art Club includes over 50 (and counting) games, activities, and crafts. We've done the mental prep for you, so you can just read and execute. We can't wait for you to see how excited your kids will be about nature time!
Painting can sometimes feel overwhelming (especially with littles) so we have provided a beautiful illustrated coloring page for each of the watercolor projects in the Club. This is a perfect activity to do while watching the videos provided or listening to a read-aloud. Littles can color while the older kids paint, or color all together. Great for coloring enthusiasts of all ages!
NEW! Learn birding basics from our favorite wildlife biologist, artist, naturalist, and environmental educator - Anna Stunkel! We have wonderful, new video tutorials to introduce our Nature's Art Club members to several birding activities. You will learn how to use binoculars, identify birds by sight and sound, bird sketching, migration, and lots more!
There are SO MANY more resources just waiting for you in Nature's Art Club: original poetry, educational video links, observation worksheets, loose parts lists, paintable bird calendar, phenology wheel template and tutorial....the list goes on and on! And we are adding more all of the time! Our goal is to give you EVERYTHING you need to make art and nature time a huge success!

Teachable is an easy-to-use online learning portal that keeps track of your progress so you can easily start and stop at any time. You can access this course at the Lily & Thistle Teachable Creative Studio (https://lily-and-thistle-studio.teachable.com/courses/).
I’ve spent months researching the best supplies at the best price point for beginners. I will give you a complete list with links for your convenience and suggestions of where to buy to get the best deals. I use the same set of supplies for all of the projects to make it easy, but also offer up options for the younger artists so you don’t feel like you are investing a ton in art supplies.
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.
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 12 year old and an 8 year old who really want to learn to paint and draw but also a 5 year old who is happy to 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, drawing classes, templates to trace, coloring pages, etc.). She can also ask a child to share some of the included fun facts and they can watch the video links provided or they can all read the nature poem together. When they feel like going outside, there are also many nature journaling activities that everyone in the family can do together.
There are no required time commitments in the Nature’s Art Club. You can use it weekly, every other week, monthly, or however often you want. I would suggest giving yourself about 30 minutes to an hour to paint, draw, or color. The activities can be done in as little as 15 minutes. Use what works for you and make it last as long as you’d like. We’ve also curated a guided syllabus if you are interested in a little more structure.
NO – and that’s the beauty of all of my courses! I make sure that everyone can be successful, no matter their art background. I provide templates for almost all of the painting projects and guide you through each step in the both the painting and drawing courses. If you already have some art experience these resources are also for you! You’ll further your education and provide an exploration of more drawing and watercolor techniques!
After signing up, you will get instant access to the Nature’s Art Club private Facebook group (though FaceBook participation is NOT required). Here you can ask questions, post discoveries and share with the private community. You can also always reach out to me via email if you have any pressing questions or concerns. I am here to help and cheer you on!
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are not satisfied with the Nature’s Art Club, please contact us within the first 30 days and we will provide you with a full refund.
