‘The Arts, Nature and Eco-Consciousness’ is topic of weekend professional workshop June 24-26

NEWPORT, R.I. – A weekend workshop for professionals interested in implementing ecology and the creative spirit into daily work and life is being offered June 24-26 through the Expressive and Creative Arts program at Salve Regina University.

“The Arts, Nature and Eco-Consciousness” is an intensive elective class ideal for teachers, facilitators, counselors, therapists and artists looking for hands-on ways to weave additional theory and creative practice of nature-consciousness into their daily routines.

This experiential program includes self-exploration through image-making, visual arts, sound, movement, storytelling and theatre arts; new approaches to earth-based mindfulness and contemplative practices; and introduction to leading visionary perspectives in the field of Reverential Ecology; and techniques and skills to re-imagine our creative roots.

Participants will continue an ongoing expressive dialogue with the natural world and practice activating the transformative nature of eco-art experiences that can be used in the fields of education, human services, community organizations, and the arts.

Registration for the workshop includes non-credit, continuing education and graduate credit options. To register, visit: https://salveregina.formstack.com/forms/arts_nature_class_application or call 401-341-3122 for more information.
