Nature & Environment Art Positive For Kids

Over the years developing my art lessons, I’ve had amazing observations present themselves.

I was able to observe links between children making art and becoming aware and conscious of their environment.

Specifically working with raw natural materials while creating arts and craft projects.

Remember there is no wrong way to create these projects, all art projects for children are practice and experience that leads to new and more developed art experiences.

These natural art projects will bring great connections to the natural world.

Making these types of projects helps develop skills, technique and inner expression which lead to better fulfilled artworks and self confidence in the later years.

Younger children can be given simple examples and easier project versions.

Older students can be challenged to connect with expressing with natural elements in their works.
