NEW ONLINE PROGRAM Launches 28th January 2019
Do you remember the joy you felt when you were a child playing within nature or when you were allowed the freedom to express yourself creatively – painting, drawing, singing, dancing?
Sadly, today we lack an intimacy with the natural world.
Many of us spend too much time indoors connected to our digital devices, disconnected from the world we once understood, honored and celebrated.
Creativity is ancient and part of what makes us human
Nature Art brings harmony and balance back into our lives which ultimately makes us happier and healthier. If you would like to feel happier and healthier from the benefits of Nature Art, join us at Educating the Heart
This is a unique program for ADULTS wishing to bring harmony and balance back into their lives through playful, soulful nature based art activities.
Urban Nature Art For Adults Online Program For just $9.99 per month
In our first Nature Art exercise, we explore “who am I” through playful, soulful nature based art activities we can do anywhere! When I play with nature – it’s a natural, organic exploration, something I have done since I was a small child and that need to play with nature has never left me. Play is the free expression of what is in a child’s soul. Growing up in the Scottish countryside, I explored, and gathered from, the natural world. I touched, held, and responded to things, in an intimate and personal way. Gaining a sense connection with these items. Living in British Columbia for the last 13 years has provided new landscapes, cultures and creative explorations both in the city and countryside that I have interwoven into this unique nature art program for adults. Here are just a few of the wonderful nature art activities we will explore over the coming months…
WHO AM I?
COLOUR IN THE CITY – inspired by Spanish artist Miro we go in search for colours in the city.
HOT ROCKS and Textures in the City
NATURE INSPIRED ARCHITECTURE – a glimpse into the fascinating story of Scottish Architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh (and his very talented wife Margaret)
WHERE WE WALK- NATURE ART ABOVE AND BELOW – Finding inspiration from the unlikeliest sources around the city
INTERBENG – What does Thich Nhat Hahn’s beautiful passage mean to you? We explore our interconnectedness to nature and each other in and around the city – producing a material canvas wall hanging
PRAYER FLAGS – exploring gratitude and mindfulness
EXPLORING THE ELEMENTS
BIRD SONG IN THE CITY – Wire birds have a home in the city – Vancouver

STORYTELLING WITH NATURE
MOUNTAIN DAY AND CONCRETE JUNGLE – Landscapes and how they influence us
Today, around 55 percent of the world’s population is thought to be living in an urban area or city, with that figure set to rise to 68 percent over the coming decades, according to the UN.
I realized the importance and urgency of providing a program that offered adults creative experiences with nature in an urban setting.
I wished to create a program that everyone could participate in, at any age, anywhere in the world. This is NOT an art program nor an environmental course, it is a simple, yet powerful program that invites you to slow down and explore your own personal creativity (nurturing your creative intelligence) through nature art that helps nurture a deeper and meaningful relationship with the natural world and all life.
Nature Art is a pathway to human health and happiness
For as little as $9.99 (2 cups of coffee) per month you can begin a new Creative Journey that will help you feel Happier and Healthier. Details of the New Nature Art Program for Adults will be released over the coming week, if you would like to learn more, please email me direct or leave a message below, we would love you to join us, with love and gratitude on this sacred new day, peace Marghanita x
