After much nudging and requests at the Studio Tour, I am ready to share how Nature guides your creativity…
EcoARTventures are back!
I LOVE sharing with others how to discover Nature’s Love and Wisdom through Art in this manner! Be ready to reclaim your natural creative intelligences and sensory awareness with Nature’s help. EcoARTventures aim to help us all create a deeper connection to Nature and ourselves – discovering our natural capabilities and strengths. My book “Natural Self Discovery” covers how I did it, and continue to learn how to recover my natural-self in this modern world at any time. I hope you consider getting the most out of your natural experiences and open up to an adventure like no other.
What is an EcoARTventure?
A 3-hour adventure in nature where you are gently guided how to get to know Nature at a deeper level, find your natural attractions, learn how to reclaim, or enhance,your awareness of your natural creative abilities and talents…within a safe, natural area of your choice. I pack up my natural portable studio backpack of supplies, and off we go! Ready?
You do not have to feel you are “creative” or an “artist”
In Nature, you already are a creative, intelligent being, so there is no judgement (the seagull or the tree will not judge your art). Nature does the work, and I help you allow it to do so. If you do feel you are fairly in touch with your creative side, beware that this approach does not have any rigid rules! It is about opening new natural creative channels we forgot were there. We simply have a good time and sense Nature fully to bring out our natural creative senses that have always been there! The goal is to discover your natural attractions in Nature, and why you are attracted to certain parts of Nature. This increases your personal connection and feeling part of it, then we move into simple doodling and writing our thoughts, then an experience mixing Natural Earth pigments (your choice of watercolor, acrylic or oil). Then, I walk you through your own original artwork. I show you how Nature supports you in freeing up that inborn creative intelligence and capacity! I am well known for helping people smash that barrier between them and their creativity and painting – we let Nature help us naturally flow back into it and escape from the societal judgements and stigmas. Ready? Let’s go! All supplies are included, I can come to you or you may come to my home studio on Mitchell Bay.
