Place based education

Place Based Education

  • What is it?

    • It is creating a personal sense of belonging in the world…beginning with “where you are now”

    • It is a way of connecting - deeply to your surroundings

    • It is not connected to a specific place

  • The outdoor classroom is an educational tool, but it is just a component of the whole.

Using art to teach life cycles

Using Art to Teach Life Cycles

  • A process approach to artwork frees everyone from “mistakes”!

  • Processes in Nature = Processes in Art

  • In artwork throughout the ages, the circle of life has been depicted literally, metaphorically, ironically, emotionally…you name it!


We are one

We Are One

All living things on Earth share a common origin. We all have bodies made of Earth and share the same life-materials.

We are all made of stardust. We all have bodies made of six elements which were born in the heart of a dying star – atoms of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and sulfur.


We all share sunlight energy we all share the same water we all live in communities

We all share sunlight energy; we all share the same water.We all live in communities.

Movement, change, light, growth and decay are the lifeblood of nature, the energies that I try to tap through my work. I need the shock of touch, the resistance of place, materials and weather, the earth is my source.
