Open to ages 7-17
Let your creativity flow – with Nature as your inspiration.
Earth-Art! Clay, paints, and pencils – Mud, leaves, and grass – the artistic exploration of nature.
Students are introduced to the natural world in a new and exciting way and given a chance to experience their own relationship with nature and creativity. All done in the tradition of the Fine Arts Camp at Earth Teach.
The building blocks of this new relationship are rooted in the ancient Primitive Living Skills and forms of Artistic Expression that were lived by all people throughout the world. These practices include mask making, natural sculpting projects, watercolor, sketching, creative journaling, storytelling, music, dance, personal shelter construction from only what materials the landscape provides, fire making methods using no matches or lighters, techniques for finding and gathering safe drinking water in the woods, silent movement, observing animals and birds, tracks and sign, and feeling the sense of belonging and fellowship with the forest. Above all, the most important skill is the cultivation of the imagination and the wonder of a Questioning mind.
Through the blended guidance of talented local professional artists with skilled Coyote Trails instructors, Earth Art students will find a deeper appreciation for cultural and creative diversity and begin an amazing exploration of their own artistic relationship with nature, themselves, and their community. Registration begins promptly at 9:00 am on the first day of class with pickup at 3:00 pm each afternoon except Friday’s culminating art show which begins at 3:30 pm. Please bring your entire family to the Art Show on Friday to see the creativity and hear your child’s story of the week.
Class size is limited to 45. Tuition is $215.00 per student. Please pack your own lunch and a mid-day healthy snack. Please No sugar or caffeinated beverages.
