Description

From art using snow, ice, leaves, and berries to sticks, branches, mud, and pebbles, Natural suggests more than 200 simple, abstract creations that readers can make when they’re out and about, using nothing but natural materials. Along with the pleasure to be had in creating something beautiful in just a few minutes, the projects are a splendid way to open a child’s eyes to all the shapes, colors, and textures nature has to offer. Pouyet is directly inspired by land artists like Robert Smithson, who created a giant stone spiral jetty in the Great Salt Lake, and Nils Udo, who makes enormous, magical nests from birch trunks and willow branches. For families, teachers, crafters, and all who delight in a few moments of creativity, Natural is a rich source of inspiration to engage with the amazingly varied elements of the everyday outdoors.
