DSCN4901If you are planning to attend the annual National Art Educators conference in New York City this Wednesday Feb 29th, there is an exciting pre-conference symposium at the Rubin Museum of Himalayan Art organized by Peter London. His books Drawing Closer to Nature and No More Second-hand art are inspiring for anyone interested in the art-nature connection. The focus of the symposium is Art, Ecology and Education. Read more here.

I’m sorry I can’t be there but I’ve designed a poster Creative Nature Connection: A nature-based art practice for schools especially for teachers. Here is a link to a video called This Little Bird. It is an artful nature encounter. Also click here for directions on how to make a folded Creative by Nature book. Here is the link for the Green teacher article on Creative Nature Connection.

I wish everyone an invigorating gathering. I’d love to see pictures and hear all about it of you happen to be attending.
