So, on our July 5th post we shared GTK's nature art experience at Baden CC with a group of young people. Great time was had by all!
When GTK returned to the center this week to complete the project students collaborated to create beautiful drawings to add to the frames that they had created during the previous workshop. Very creative, nature based outcomes!

Monday was just cool enough to be outdoors with our campers. We took a great walk from the center to a nearby park that had an awesome outdoor classroom. We brought along our imaginations and focused on looking deeply at the little aspects of nature that we encountered along the way.
When we arrived at the site we shared our experiences with nature and brainstormed strategies for including everyone's ideas into a collaborative mural.
The rest of the week had heat alerts that did not allow us to be outdoors! So we focused on visualizing our Monday experience. Our results are wonderful!

Were are co-creating a weaving using cattails from the Patuxent River and sticks from the Baden woods. Everyone pitched in and made it a great afternoon! The young people were inspired and the staff was also engaged! We will be together to complete the artwork in a couple of weeks.
