Create temporary art in the outdoors

These outdoor sessions give you the opportunity to explore and experience deeper connection and presence within the NOW moment. Not only do we not leave a lasting impact on the site, but this way of creating art also emphasizes the impermanence and flux of life – putting into focus how fragile and temporary our lives are in relation to geological time, even though we tend to strive so hard for longevity and eternal youth.

Talk to me about facilitating a group session for a birthday event, family outing, or team-building event – I have a discounted rate for ‘commissioned’ group workshops.

What to expect: After a quick introduction to get to know each other better, I’ll introduce you to our site, land art as an art form, and guidelines to your creative process (including how to respect the ecosystem and leave a small impact). After a sensory tune-in with our surroundings (using our senses to look, smell, listen) we’ll start playing & making – creating arrangements and visual poetry that express the dialogue you are having with your surroundings. I will make suggestions and give ideas if needed, but you are free to connect, play and create at your own pace and guided by your own creativity. You can create on your own, or work on something together with others. We’ll have a look at each temporary art piece – appreciating, taking photos, and sharing thoughts that came up during the process.

The site location depends on the season, the weather, and the tide.
