let's start this discussion ;) I've just joined the network and am opening a forest school in Port Macquarie, NSW, Australia. It would be lovely to have a discussion forum on art in nature ideas. 

I believe in the potential of making art out of all that is in nature rather than bringing man made items to the environment. I.e. using sticks for painting on the mud, or mud for gluing leaves on paper etc...what do you think?

I love natural art projects.  One favorite of my favorites is weaving.  Ideally something like this https://www.pinterest.com/pin/141863456983246451/, but I've never had a piece come out that straight. Also, individual small size weaving using twigs as the frame.  

When will your school be opening?  I'm from the US but will be in the Port Maquarie area in early July.  I'd love to learn more about your school. 

Hey Lauren, weaving is definitely fun!I love making wreaths out of willow tree branches.

We're organising a basket weaving workshop through the Port Macquarie Community Gardens later this year, you might be here for it :) You might be here for our pilot program! That would be great :) I just read your profile and what an interesting journey you've been having. We'd love to keep in touch. Do you want to send me your travel plans: sybil@thenatureschool.org.au 

Enjoy your day :)

That's wonderful!  I will keep in touch.  I found your Facebook page. I'll email you.

This is a wonderful idea! I look forward to networking and sharing Nature/art ideas.

This is beautiful.

in my opinion, art doesn't have to be perfect. Some of the best artwork is abstract. Even in nature you will find a world of diversity!
