Note for "Art from Nature"
Healing Arts and Handcraft, a summer class, is another challenge for me. I found the following phrase in the module today.
“The difference between an artist and a craftsman is that a craftsman is interested in his or her tools and an artist disdains them.” —Richard Benson
If you're reading this from an artist's point of view, you're sure to be confused. I started this week with this mess. However, I have to discover and apply the tools of artisans in my work in order to successfully carry out the tasks of this class.
In that sense, there is a site created by craftsmen who are already taking on this challenge, so I will introduce it for a while.
* Making Art from a nature
Making art from nature means using various elements of nature (leaves, sticks, stones, bones, water, etc.) in creative ways to create new artworks. The resulting work makes a statement about nature and the relationship between humans and nature.
There are no right or wrong answers, only opinions. If such works provoked us to examine our views on life, death, and nature, perhaps they served a truly constructive purpose!
Making art from nature proves the point by reinterpreting natural elements by giving meaning to natural objects. Art from nature is itself a new art object, or the essence is recorded in the form of a photo or video, and the real thing is left to decompose naturally. Art in nature combines elements of nature with an artistic vision to create works of art that push the boundaries of what art is and how we perceive ourselves in the natural world.
* DIY paint brush for kids
The above site is a site where you can make various types of brushes for painting using pure natural materials.
The site you have come across offers a sanctuary for artists and creators, a virtual haven where the art of brush-making intertwines with the beauty of pure, natural materials. Here, in this digital realm, artisans and enthusiasts alike can explore a treasure trove of possibilities, crafting brushes that transcend mere tools and become extensions of creative expression.
For a week, I plan to design my own creative tools through nature. This course is definitely difficult, but it will give me another chance to jump.
This week-long adventure will not only nurture your artistic abilities but also grant you a fresh perspective on the world around you. Through nature, you will gain a deeper understanding of the interconnectedness of all things and discover the boundless possibilities that exist when we align ourselves with the rhythms of the natural world.
Embrace experimentation and be open to unexpected discoveries. Nature's palette is vast, and its textures are diverse. Allow yourself to explore unconventional materials, combining them in ways that challenge traditional notions of artistry.
