Arts of Nature
Arts of Nature nourishes our interconnectedness with the natural world through immersive nature education and celebratory arts. By cultivating a participatory relationship with the land, our programs promote health and well-being, foster environmental leadership and build community.
Arts of Nature provides Immersive Nature Education programs for young people ages 5 through 16, as well as for adults and families.
We have a nine-month long program, weekend programs, day programs and summer camps, all incorporating a native, participatory approach to learning from the land. The focus is on restoring and deepening creative and imaginative relationships with the natural world and ultimately on cultivating an ecological consciousness, the sense of being part of the natural world rather than separate from it.
Arts of Nature also engages in Celebratory Arts to express and enhance our connections with nature, self and others. We design and coordinate innovative seasonal festivals, with a series of community art workshops prior to each event. Moreover, Arts of Nature forms artistic collaborations with other organizations in order to foster local activist involvement with local environmental issues.
