Today it is all about Art Inspired by Nature. You can see so much art in nature if you take the time to look. The Earth has provided us with so much beauty. The colors that surround us, the plants, flowers, bodies of water, creatures. Everything we see is art if you can appreciate it. This is truly a look into our everyday lives and love for nature. I hope you enjoy it. You can download your wonderful set of nature-inspired art cards below.

Be still my heart

Today I am focusing on art for children age 3 and up. Although I do believe younger children can do any of these activities and you can use nature-inspired art at any age. I would definitely add different things in for a baby and toddler. That might have to be the next post.

Artists use what is around them as inspiration

If you think about famous artists throughout time they all used different things for inspiration. What one person finds beautiful and/or interesting (nature, portraits) another might like the abstract or expressionism much better. I believe in letting the children experience all different types of art and letting them decide when and what they want to make. I should add Maria Montessori believed the same thing 😉

These eeboo sketchbooks are our favorites for on the go. We love everything eeboo! You can take another peek at the kids using them for our botany study. As far as drawing goes my children love the Branch & Twig Colored Pencils and Silky Crayons. It is also important to have clay for the children to use. Children absolutely love working with clay and creating their own art.

Dance and movement as part of an artistic expression.

We love Sarah’s Silks Streamers and playsilks.

We have a lot of wonderful art books at home and visit the library regularly. It is important for children to hear the stories of artists and see the masterpieces from a variety of different artists. I Am an Artist is the perfect Montessori art nature-inspired book. It is a favorite at our house.

Busy little artists

Maria Montessori believed children should have high-quality art supplies. In saying that we do what we can. I love having higher quality paper for the children to use.  It really does make a big difference. We have a lot of different watercolor choices. Liquids, Artist’s Loft Watercolor Pan Set and Watercolor Paint. Aprons, trays, art sponges, brushes, and paints are always within reach for my children to enjoy. If you don’t have an art area already you should definitely think about setting up a safe place for your children to explore art. You never know they might be the next Picasso.
