Drawing Closer to Nature with Wiltshire Creative
17 Jan - 14 March 2023
This online course delivered by Zoom, was about discovering and harnessing the benefits of nature through art for wellbeing, from the comfort of our own homes. Participants took the time together to notice and explore the beauty of our changing landscape as we move from Winter to Spring using objects found in nature.
Everyone needs nature as an aid to wellbeing, and by connecting with it in a meaningful way through creativity we can build a continued connection with place, each other, and ourselves. This course will also invited participants to explore nature around their creatively between the online sessions.
Participants were taught techniques needed to continue creative explorations, following the conclusion of the project, to supply lasting benefits to your creativity and well-being. Techniques included drawing with graphite, ink, and charcoal; using wax resist; clay and collage.
