I will be teaching art to 6 adults who are dealing with issues of addictions and homelessness. The aim is to teach them basic art skills and knowledge to enable them to learn to paint in nature. My hope is that being in nature will give them an opportunity to see beyond their issues and find a world bigger than their own. It is my hope that they would also fall in love with the nature that surrounds them. For as Louie Schwartzberg says, we protect what we love.
