Nature Arts Camp©- for SEEing & Celebrating the ART in Nature
Location is everything... or almost. This is an outdoor program offered at MacCarthy Farm in Mineral Bluff, GA, but I can do a similar program at sites having strong natural environmental emphasis and some semi-inclosed structures (barns or pavilions) in case of weather surprises. In addition to art inspired by nature and art that incorporates natural materials, students learn about caring for the environment, enhancing observation skills, learning about plants, animals, & more. Adult Art-Partners are encouraged to participate.
Custom Design a Residency &/or Teacher Training
I will collaborate with your
school or site to custom design the residency to fit your needs. I have
over twenty years’ experience with skill-building in various visual arts
media, and work well with all ages.
Windows Within: Art for Wellness©
An art and self discovery program developed and offered by Angie Cook
There is a seedbed of creativity
that is inside from the early beginnings of our existence, and although
we may not all be artists, we can tap and use those resources to our benefit.
The nature of the processes in art can help relieve stress. Spontaneous
exploration of the arts can free the spirit from heavy concerns. A self
discovery begins to take place, as windows within. Although the elements
of design are the golden thread of this series, these are not art classes
for learning specific art making skills. These are creative exploration
sessions for the purpose of finding that special 'spark' of creativity,
and as a result we may begin a journey toward a state of wellness.
