Spend two days over a weekend and enjoy all the forest has to offer. Experiment with various art making activities like solar nature prints, fish prints, clay and paint. Savor and interpret the experience with creative visual journaling exercises. Share dinner and campfire in the evening. Bring musical instruments, share poems and stories and perhaps even share some of the writings done during the workshop. We will have a pop-up art show of all our creations at the end of the weekend.
Plan to relax and unwind and enjoy a beautiful fall evening around the fire ring with new friends. You will share casual picnics in the park and meet again at the end of the workshop to share your accomplishments and celebrate the experience! Stay over for $45 per night for a semi private space in the cabin. Call 515-835-1264 to reserve your space on first come, first served basis.
