3rd Annual Environmental Arts Retreat
Thursday, September 26th - Sunday, September 29th

Art is a bridge that connects how we affect our environment and how it affects each of us. This Environmental Arts Retreat will offer specific methods for engaging with nature. Encouraging the integration of self and environment both personally and professionally, the ultimate goal will be finding the relationship between self-care and environmental stewardship. Participants will explore their internal and external attachments as reflected in the creative choices made within a natural environment. This retreat is open to anyone seeking to learn ways to creatively connect to nature and is also open to Creative Art Therapists and other helping professionals interested in integrating community building, nature and the arts into their practice.
