Conversations in Wildflowers: A Creative Investigation & Walk
July 16, 2016 @ 9:15 am - 12:15 pm$45
Indulge in the act of pausing to be fully present in nature. Engage in a conversation with the earth through all of your senses. Connect. Collaborate. Harmonize. Local artist and Certified Nature Connected Coach, Ivy Walker, is joined by writer and executive director of 1% for Open Space Molly Murfee, in a series of visual, written and sensory exercises to really sink in and deepen your unique relationship with the land. Tap into your nature-inspired creativity through reflecting, journaling, and making art with the land, rather than always moving swiftly through it. Use the natural history of wildflowers, site-specific sculpture artists (such as Andy Goldsworthy), environmental writers (such as Terry Tempest Williams), and the inherent metaphor of nature as your muses. Need physical ability to be on and off the trail, crouching, standing, and sitting without a chair in the terrain. Bring a journal or notebook. Art supplies provided. A portion of this workshop’s tuition is donated to 1% for Open Space for the permanent preservation of our gorgeous landscapes.
