Trees, like humans, are complex beings. They have memories, conversations, friends, family members, and creative energy, just like people do. This workshop explores the ways in which nature can help us cope with our rapidly changing lives and with our increasingly complex world. What can we learn from trees about the possibilities of our new reality? How can trees help us to be thriving, creative, and generous members of our communities?
Let's use the power of art to stay connected during these unusual times and to explore our sense of community, relationships, and communication. A diverse group of makers, writers and performers will inspire our work, including Josephine Halvorson and Karl Blossfeldt, who are currently exhibiting at deCordova. Join us for a creative experience that will open your eyes and heart to new ways of making art and experiencing nature. Note: No previous art experience necessary.
For grades 6-8, all levels and interests welcome
Class is capped at 12 students to allow for individualized feedback and interaction through Zoom.
