“This project, ‘Art Adventures in Nature’ celebrates the world around us by nurturing playful exploration and creativity in the great outdoors. It was a real pleasure to spend time with each resident learning about their lives and adapting each workshop to their interests with an emphasis on creating a relaxed fun environment to learn new processes and embrace the explorative nature of creativity.”

“This project valued getting outdoors, working with natural materials and tapping into residents’ adventurous spirit. Some of the most memorable and rewarding moments were seeing a person’s creativity really flourish through an activity that you had developed in response to their interests and abilities; moments of shared focus, of working together, often without words, as creative equals; as curious minds immersed in the moment, there could be great joy in those moments.”
