Making Art out of Natural Materials
Ever since I was a child, I have made art out of natural materials. Whether it be playing in the mud or deconstructing pinecones, the natural world has always connected to me. What about you. Here is an idea:
- Go outside and gather a variety of pinecones, stones, sticks, and sand.
- Find a place to work.
- Observe your pieces and lay them out in a way that is pleasing to you.
- I made a radial or circular design. You might make a design or an image that has a name…perhaps a scene with mountains or a person.
Making natural art is a simple way to feel good and connect with the earth. Remember some art lasts forever but some art is not permanent. Enjoy the process.
