“I started Marghanita’s amazing nature course last summer and would highly recommend this fantastic program to everyone looking to further children’s connection with mother nature. This course brings out the true meaning of our world on such a beautifully enlightening level. Every time I receive a new chapter the children’s faces light up with excitement into another fascinating adventure with the great outdoors. Marghanita is just such a breath of fresh air and an inspiration to everyone who comes across her delightfully well prepared lessons. I would highly recommend this course and find it fantastic!!!!!”
Nancy O’Neil- Preschool teacher British Columbia
What age group are the art projects suitable for?
The activities are for all age groups. The nature based art projects might last a few hours, a few days, or even a few months depending on how much you wish to develop each one. For younger children you can simplify and for older children you can allow them to explore deeper. As you work through each exercise you will document your experiences and build your own individual lesson plans for your specific classes.
Is this a home study course? Can I work at my own pace?
Yes, this is a home study course allowing you to take your time over each chapter, working at your own pace.
I’ve never taken an online course before. How does it work?
The workshop materials are delivered in Chapters. Once you are registered you will receive your welcome PDF and video explaining the course in more detail. You will then receive your first chapter via email. You can choose to receive the full twelve chapters as one block or have them sent to you over the course of 4 months where you receive 3 chapters per month.
Do I get a Certificate at the end of the course?
Yes, a certificate of completion is awarded to each student upon completion of the Nature Art Program The program was designed to accommodate the needs of an international audience of educators. In order to suit the needs of differing curriculum and schedules across many schools, provinces, and countries, the program could not be tied to one specific curriculum. Therefore, the decision made was to leave the content of the program flexible and open to interpretation, allowing each individual educator to infuse the program into their current curriculum as they see fit and in keeping with their school system.
How many hours are for Personal Development?
The first 2 chapters focus on the educator (time spent on each project is up to each individual and can range from several hours to several days or even weeks) then we focus on the students, however you continue your personal development throughout the 10 remaining chapters.
I am not very creative, is this program for me?

How much physical space will I need?
All you require is a small space for most of the activities. The actual space you use is ideally outdoors however everything can be done indoors. It is important that you have a quiet space, uninterrupted time and privacy for personal creative work.
Do I need a high-speed Internet connection to view the course videos?
