My nature Art camp is an opportunity for children and youth to connect with nature and use it to arouse creativity through art. It is a privileged and peaceful time in a beautiful environment just west of Calgary.
The participants and I spend lots of time exploring the forest, ponds and creeks around my studio. We take photos, sketch, paint, collect interesting rocks from the stream and evocative forest materials that inspire art projects of all kinds. For many of the children, it’s an opportunity to really decompress and experience quality time in nature, to recognize its beauty and to develop a sense of connection with our world as well as to awaken their creativity.
For me, the joy is in sharing my passion for art and nature. My visual world as an artist takes root in my experiences in nature as a child. Those peaceful experiences awoke in me a sense of awe and a love for the world I wish to share with my students. In this camp, I can witness those beautiful moments when each child recognizes that personal connection with nature and expresses it in an original work of art.
