Arader has devoted more than four decades to building a comprehensive gallery of natural history artwork, including hand-colored aquatints and lithographs by John James Audubon and other important ornithological, zoological, and botanical artists. Participants attend workshops on topics such as communication styles, study skills, procrastination and time management, and studying abroad, as well as take part in a variety of more social events.
