We invite you to get inspired by nature
Go for a walk in your yard (or park) and collect items that can be used for nature art. We ask that you don’t pick flowers or pull out items from the ground on public or private property (except your own, of course!). Collect items on the ground, such as dried pods and plants from last season, pinecones, sticks, stones, fallen leaves, etc. Then create! You can make it permanent with glue, or just leave it loose, take a photo, clear your “palette” and begin a new creation!
- Adults – Get inspired by these art pieces from nature artist Vicki Rawlins: https://sistergolden.com/collections/flower-art-prints
- Here’s some inspiration from a Fall Nature Art program we did in 2018 (note that because it was the end of the season, we did allow picking of some flowers and other items we collected ahead of time with permission from private property)
- Here’s a downloadable packet of activities for kids (it’s $10) that offers hours of fun and learning! If you don’t want to buy it, it still offers great ideas! See video below and find out more at this link: https://mothernatured.com/printables/nature-printables/
- The Dollar Tree has bags of smooth river rocks and we purchased gray or black mats for “palettes”. We also used hula hoops for our temporary “frames” . But you can use what you have at home and get creative.
