Good Morning Beautiful People…
It gives me great pleasure to share with you a little gift – a FREE NATURE ART CALENDAR – a small thank you for your love and support throughout the year. Like every year, we grow stronger, more beautiful, more creative, more peaceful by sharing the sacred journey of connecting our children with Mother Earth’s Heart. And what a joy and privilege it is to share this journey with you all- full of gratitude!
At Educating the Heart the year began with a new challenge – finding nature art in the city (my home city of Edinburgh)
We had so much fun making our “Nature Art in the City” Video…video to be released early next year.
Followed by a most delightful trip to visit Tom Shea at his latest childcare centre in England.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Tom about the importance of play – what a beautiful, inspiring, creative soul he is – watch the video:
Then early Spring, I presented a workshop at the Children and Nature Conference in Vancouver where I got to play and be creative with a wonderful group of like-minded souls.
Storytelling with nature always brings out the inner child – what fun!
Change is Happening!
It was so great to hear what these beautiful people were doing in their part of the world. A big thank you to Richard Louv and Cheryl Charles for bringing this amazing event to BC. To learn more about the children and nature network visit: Children and Nature
Spring art projects brought great joy to all – thanks to Artstarts grant funding. “The whole energy of the school changed during the nature art project” – Mrs Baga – Principal – Khalsa School
Summer camp was magical as ever – classes were held in different locations offering oodles of playful, creative exploration.
Our online NATURE ART PROGRAM has grown considerably over the year, with students from all around the globe joining in the sacred journey. It makes my heart sing to think of all our educators in Australia, Korea, Singapore, Greece, Slovenia, Spain, UK, New Zealand, France, USA and here in Canada providing opportunities for their students to learn, play and grow in nature…it fills me with hope for the future. Together we are making a difference.
Autumn arrived quite late – sharing her gifts with us all during our Nature Art Weekends in the beautiful Okanagan.
Stay tuned for our Spring Nature Art Weekends!!
Now Winter is finally here…
…offering a brand new canvas for nature art exploration in the forest and down at the lakeshore.
Loving our one to one sessions with my special needs student -Elise.
And so the year will soon come to an end, giving birth to a new year of wonder, love, exploration, discovery, joy and oodles of creative adventures as we play, learn and grow in nature.
I hope the 2018 Nature Art Calendar will help inspire you and your students, family and friends to get creative in nature throughout the coming year.
