Foster and embody your innate and profound connection with art, nature and movement. Learn how to connect to your body,
your breath, and your heart through
nature, artmaking and creative expression.
Practicing the art of traditional skills we will learn to make decisions from a place of understanding and compassion for life. Together we unfold a new sustainable life with mindful art making and accessing the divine essence of co-creator. Our nurturing environment offers opportunities for spiritual development and the exploration of personal healing, so we can grow up as more embodied, confident souls, fully tapped into our own truth. The teachings are Rudolf Steiner inspired with focus on process over product. We offer mixed age, youth and adult classes. We use natural, foraged, eco, non-toxic, recycled, upcycled and reusable materials. Experience the art of surrender, create with enthusiasm, learn and improve important life skills,
and make art with nature.
