Lange Institute: Nature & Art  specializes in the delivery of whole, educational nature and art programs and events for all ages and skill levels, with a concentration on illustrations, renderings, watercolors, drawings, and sketches in the natural world.

Our work occurs throughout the New England corridor and encompasses the tri-state New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut region. Our home studio is based in metropolitan Hartford, on the east side of the Connecticut River.  We regularly travel to and attend naturalist and artistic events to capture small town charm, to visit museums, or to spend  a day healing, growing, and learning at a nature preserve.

I invite you to connect with us by email at, or by phone at 941.875.5190.  Our Facebook page contains all our events (and registration); our Instagram account is a pictorial journal of our nature and art encounters.  On our Twitter account we post articles related to creative placemaking, contemporary art, and the natural world, and where and how one can find “sacred spaces” embedded within. Our Pinterest account is a resource for artist links, references, illustration guides and more.  Finally, our founder’s Linkedin  page gives you a bit of our background.  Also, you may wish to check out Lange: Creative Art Consultants International, also on Linkedin for a global network of over 20,000 art pros. We look forward to working with you soon and sharing how art experiences in nature can bring you and yours a world of joy for years to come.
