Art & Nature
Art provides a wonderful means of connecting with nature and your true nature - either making art with natural objects or making art depicting nature. Picasso said, "All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up." Nature writer Bill Plotkin asserts, "We are all artists. The artistic potential lives within each of us, sometimes dormant, sometimes aroused... Many nature based cultures have no word for art or artist because producing what we call art is simply part of being human" (Soulcraft, p. 191).
