Art of Sustainability

Goes to School

This newsletter includes three recent engagements I had at schools, from an Earth Day keynote and art installation in a university in California to an architecture class and mural project at a high school in Vermont. As an alum of Holderness School in New Hampshire, I was also featured in their last magazine. I hope you enjoy the articles, images and video!

I encourage you or your school, organization, or business to invite me to lead a workshop with your group. These focus on expressive mask making, reconnecting to naturestilt walking and A Little Farm Story, as well as multiple Art of Sustainability workshops. I also encourage you to consider my art pieces - paintings and sculptures - and my book, A Little Farm Story as spring gifts for loved ones.

Earth Day Keynote and "The Waste Stream"

For Earth Day, I was invited to Humboldt State University in Arcata, California to deliver a talk on my "Art of Sustain-ability" approach and to co-create an installation with students to raise awareness about the plastics flowing through our lives (and into the ocean). I am grateful to organizers and to the Humboldt Energy Independence Fund for making my participation possible. Read my reflections, view images and download my presentation.

Mural and Architecture Classes

I recently had the pleasure of working with 20 high school students at The Sharon Academy here in Vermont. I led an inward-looking mural project called "Humanizing Skin" in which students created colorful, life-sized plywood self-portraits. In my architecture class, students designed both a fantasy treehouse and an artist-in-residence cabin for possible construction at the school. View example mural images and a summary video of the architecture class!
