Forest in the Classroom
Marghanita has been bringing nature-based art activities into schools for over 15 years both here in British Columbia and in Scotland UK. Art and nature together create a magical way to connect children to Mother Earth and help the child understand their place in the world. In her workshops, Marghanita collaborates with teachers on art projects that focus on the interconnectedness we have with one another and all living things and can be integrated with the curriculum. She introduces students to the awe and wonder of nature through art with projects such as Land Art, Large Group Collages and simple nature-based art activities and storytelling. All of which provide the students with a better understanding of their connection with nature and in ways that are fun and encourage them to explore and celebrate their unique sense of creativity.
