Green Teacher Webinar: "Creative Nature Connection: A Nature-based Art Practice"-- Presenter: Lisa Lipsett
Wednesday, October 24, 2012 from 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
In nature education programming, one sometimes finds a scientific bias that leaves out our most powerful human capacities. If we hope to transform our relationship to nature, we need to open our senses, access our feelings and develop our intuition in addition to carefully observing and asking questions. Ongoing engagement is a practice, a life habit, something we come back to again and again over long periods of time. To meet the need for simple yet powerful educational solutions I have developed Creative Nature Connection- a nature based art practice that harnesses the power of drawing and painting to move us toward full engagement with the living world. This practice draws us in to nature's beauty in fresh ways that create lasting impressions. This webinar will begin with a brief introduction to the concepts underlying nature based art practices, a description of Creative Nature Connection and include a short experiential activity together (have blank paper and pen ready!). An article with resources and references will be available for download. By way of background, visit www.creativenatureconnection.com to read my article “Transformation is in Our Hands” from Green Teacher’s Winter 2011 edition.
Suitability: All formal and non formal youth educators, especially those working with kids of elementary and middle school age.

Green Teacher receives no funding –other than donations - for the webinars, but doing them takes up lots of staff time.
