This is where it all begins! Campers will be introduced to the forest world in a wonderous and exciting way and given a chance to experience their own relationship with the natural world and creativity.

The building blocks of this new relationship are rooted in ancient Primitive Living Skills and forms of Artistic Expression that have been lived by all people throughout the world. These practices include mask making, natural sculpting projects, watercolor, sketching, creative journaling, storytelling, personal shelter construction from only what materials the landscape provides, fire making methods using no matches or lighters, techniques for finding and gathering safe drinking water in the woods, silent movement, observing animals and birds, tracks and sign, and feeling the sense of belonging and fellowship with the forest. Above all, the most important skill is the cultivation of the imagination and the wonder of a Questioning mind.

Through the blended guidance of talented local professional artists with highly skilled Coyote Trails instructors, Earth Art campers will experience a week at EarthTeach with greater environmental awareness, deeper appreciation for cultural and creative diversity, and begin an amazing exploration of their artistic relationship with nature, themselves, and their community.

There is no other opportunity in Southern Oregon that so uniquely combines all of these endeavors in such an amazing nature setting as EarthTeach Forest Park.
