Marghanita Hughes

I am a visual artist and facilitator of learning committed to reuniting both children and adults with the natural world through art. My art projects and programs focus on the interconnectedness we have with one another and all living things, celebrating this connection through art. Founder of "Educating the Heart with Nature Art" - an international nature art program which provides solutions for educators, parents and organizations wishing to connect with nature. I love to introduce students to the awe and wonder of nature through art.
Nature is always inviting us to play, to explore, imagine and create.I believe in allowing each individual child and adult to follow their curiosity and the seasons as they unfold. Like nature, we too unfold, opening up to the wonders and the treasure that whisper to us as we forage from the wilds and nearby nature.
Nature art provides the students with a better understanding of their connection with nature and in ways that are fun and encourage them to explore and celebrate their unique sense of creativity. We explore how we can reawaken our deep- rooted connection to the natural world and our unique language with which the arts ignite
