The 'Our Shared Planet' hands-on art program is a unique opportunity for children of all ages to create their own masterpiece of nature.  This program is specially designed to be given at exhibit locations and in hosting communities.  It is perfect for small groups or complete classrooms.
  “We are at a time when many of us have lost one of our greatest gifts, a deep sense of connection to the natural world around us. With this one of a kind program, our aim is to reconnect participants with nature, by means of another special gift, our individual creativity.”

The full program includes the slide presentation, "A Journey Through Nature To Creativity", given by the artist, Jim Ramsdell.  This is followed by a carving and painting demonstration, as well as a hands-on art project.  Each young artist taps into their unique creativity, as they paint their own wooden feather or fish.  It all wraps up with a guided tour of the exhibit led by Jim and an educational visit to his solar powered, mobile workshop.  It is a blend of the senses, guaranteed to capture the hearts, minds, and imaginations of young and old alike.
