Its not too often that you have an entire audience of 5-10yr-olds entranced, but when we showed them the work of Tim Knowles and Aganetha Dyck they were exactly that. Watching the partnership these artists had with "nature" created an almost surreal, movie-set-like atmosphere, as if everyone's eyes were recording every nuance of the work created between artist and nature.
Its easy to philosophize about why these connections with our natural communities are so important, as being outside seems to impact every facet of who we are physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We were reminded this week that it's a lot more simple than we often analyze it to be. As you watch the faces of our campers in the video below, it's clear that nature reminds us that we just belong. Enjoy.
