Art in Nature Weekend
Relax Renew Reset
Come and join Emily McCullagh, experienced Art Therapist and nature connection facilitator, at Crann Og Ecofarm Co. Galway, for two days of creative exploration in a pristine environment. Using art therapy with natural materials and yoga, we will be exploring our connection to the wild part of ourselves.
This weekend will focus on using natural materials and found objects to create sculptures, assemblies and installations in the natural environment. There will also be traditional drawing and painting materials at hand. It is not so much about learning artistic techniques as exploring personal meaning through interaction with the materials and the natural world. Bring a camera if you want to record your work as we like the ethic of leave no trace. There will be opportunity to share you artwork’s meaning with others and this is completely your choice.
“taken away from my usual environment and way of thinking, like a taste of another way of being, a way to see things differently. It really brought me into my body… It was special to be out in nature, gentle, playful, nourishing and a treat.” Wendy
“it felt like dance, the space and air felt soft. …a different way to experience it. Also, you didn’t require us to ‘perform’ or display” Derbhla
