Have you heard of Richard Shilling? Have you heard of Land Art?
By spending the time making Land Art you will use your imagination, be creative, get some fresh air and learn all about nature and natural places.
Land Art really can be done anywhere. Any place that you can find natural things like leaves, twigs, stones or pebbles is a suitable place to do Land Art.
There is worry for the safety of our children and many are denied much of the adventure of the outdoors, to climb trees and to learn all about nature and instead many are leading sedentary lifestyles in front of a computer game or the TV.
With land art comes opportunities to learn about nature, to appreciate it's wonders, to learn respect for it and our place within.
This is exactly what a great many of us do naturally, kids and adults alike, and by behaving in this way you get a better connection with nature, more appreciation of the natural world, calmness from the connection, fun, creativity and play too!
