Writing & Visual Art:
One Wild & Precious Life

This cohort is for those who are passionate about visual art, creative writing, and nature. The students will be exploring personal identity, art, culture, and humanity’s relationship to nature.  

You will be doing workshops in creative writing, drawing, collage, and painting, sometimes in art studios and sometimes in outdoor settings. The focus of the expedition days will be on creative writing and making art. In the final pursuit, in addition to writing and making art, there will also be space in the days for exercise, reflection, and time in nature.
