i recently went on a trip with a group of high schoolers and instructors through an awesome organization called fall line south field institute. i was one of two art instructors and we lead nature based art lessons for a week while paddling down the etowah river.
one of my favorite things that we did the entire week was harvesting river clay and making small beads, pots, and sculptures. we made an epic fire and nestled our pots in the fire, unveiling our creations in the morning. it was a project enjoyed by everyone!
