Nature Art: Missouri State Symbols Painting Series Virtual Program

January 19 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm


Since streams have tremendous economic and recreational importance to Missouri, it’s easy to understand why a creature many people associate with streams – the crayfish – is the state invertebrate.

People can paint this well-known creature of Missouri’s waterways at the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) virtual program “Nature Art: Missouri State Symbols Painting Series.” This online program, which will be from 5:30-7 p.m. on Jan. 19, is being put on by the staff of MDC’s Shepherd of the Hills Conservation Center in Branson. This program is suggested for ages six and up. It is part of a series of programs put on by the Shepherd of the Hills staff that give people a chance to paint and learn about Missouri’s state symbols. People can register for this program at:


At this program, MDC volunteer Gala Keller will provide step-by-step painting instructions on how to paint a crayfish. Interesting facts about crayfish and the role they play in a stream ecosystem will also be provided throughout the program. Participants will need to furnish their own painting supplies. Small canvases and simple techniques will be used; no painting experience is necessary.

Though this program is free, registration is required. To participate, use the link above. Registrants must provide an e-mail, so a program link and a list of suggested supplies can be sent to them.
