For three years, Nature’s Bounty has changed approaches with the week’s interactions with the natural surroundings at Wildacres. The name remains the same. The bounty and gifts of nature are everchanging. Expect during the week to discover what nature has to offer during this season and how you can incorporate it into working with such mediums as paper clay, printmaking, handmade paper, drawing, painting, alternative photographic processes, book arts and botanical printing on fabric and paper. Build a handmade journal and learn techniques for content that capture your experiences in the natural world in the middle of the NC mountains. Explore processes that scaffold discovery and explore poetry through text and self-expression. Design and compose with nature in mind.
