THE ELEMENTAL ARTS EXPERIENCE

  • We believe in the power of art and nature to bring balance, inspiration, and connection to our lives. 

  • We believe businesses that focus on personal elevation and team connection become thriving and resilient 

  • We create opportunities for groups and individuals to gain wisdom from lessons of impermanence, creative constraints, improvisation, and collaboration. 

In each outing we gather in a natural outdoor location and engage the landscape to create artwork based upon the materials at hand. After warmup activities that connect the participants to themselves, each other, the tools and the location, the team works together to develop a temporary artwork that works within the constraints of the area. We focus on supporting both individual creative expression and team collaboration to create large works of art that are only achievable thru a team effort.
