Collaborations with Nature



Collaborations with Nature

JUNE 28 TO 30

9:00 AM TO 3:30 PM

We are so lucky to live in a place where the sea meets the sky. The diversity of our landscape should be celebrated and during this three day camp we’ve decided to do just that. Christianne will lead campers scavenging our local forests for materials we can use to create a one-of-a-kind outdoor art installation in the spirit of Andy Goldsworthy. Taking our cues from the environment, we’ll follow the children’s natural curiosities when it comes to collaborating with nature to create pattern and beauty. We’ll study the work of Andy Goldsworthy and watch him create one of his installations. The group will listen to rich stories as they weave outdoors, listening to the gentle lull of the waves. As a group, we will encourage each student to keep a small nature journal, spending part of each day embracing a 10 minute window of silence to jot down their nature observations. 

Campers will be asked to bring a packed lunch so that we are able to spend as much time as possible in the great outdoors.
