The Art and Educational programs at Mt. Charleston are designed to use art as a medium to encourage learning about the ecology, geology and natural landscape of the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area. The programs range in focus from traditional photography and drawing workshops to demos in video and sound composing. The art programs include the Wildlife Divide series; an innovative approach to public art programming that includes activities and events intended to bridge the divide between urban and natural environments through artistic activity. The workshops and exhibits encourage the public to participate and collaborate on projects with both artists and naturalists, and to have an enjoyable, relaxing and educational experience within the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area, more commonly known as Mt. Charleston.
