I have always had the desire to share the joy of creating art and the awe and wonder of nature with children. As the disconnection between children and nature widens, I feel compelled to do what I can to reconnect children with the Natural World through meaningful art.

 

Educating the Heart through Nature Art

” Educating the Heart Through Nature Art” Workshops for Educators

The best teachers, teach from the heart. Teaching with Love and Compassion enables the educator to deliver lessons with much greater depth and meaning. In this “hands-on” workshops we will create soulful and meaningful art from nature. During the interactive workshops you will learn how to actively engage children with nature through art with a focus on self-expression, creativity, love and compassion and connection. Through exploration and discovery, these nature based activities awaken childrens’ senses, minds and hearts and help them to express their feelings, ideas, thoughts and urges. Providing children with a better understanding of their connection with nature and one another in ways that are fun and encourage them to explore and celebrate their unique sense of creativity

“Nothing can substitute for walking in nature, hearing birds, looking for shells on the beach, wtching the daily growth of a flower in the garden. From the very beginning of life it is vital to maintain the link between the child and nature”. – Maria Montessori

I have been visiting schools for over 15 years now, providing interactive, nature based, hands-on-workshops. I am also a member of Artists in the classroom Directory

Marghanita has been bringing nature-based art activities into schools for over 15 years both here in British Columbia and in Scotland UK. Art and nature together create a magical way to connect children to Mother Earth and help the child understand their place in the world. In her workshops, Marghanita collaborates with teachers on art projects that focus on the interconnectedness we have with one another and all living things and can be integrated with the curriculum. She introduces students to the awe and wonder of nature through art with projects such as Land Art, Large Group Collages and simple nature-based art activities and storytelling. All of which provide the students with a better understanding of their connection with nature and in ways that are fun and encourage them to explore and celebrate their unique sense of creativity.
