Get creative in nature with “land art”

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.  (WOTV)- Celebrating Earth Day in April (and every day) got me outside and enjoying all that nature has to offer.

I recently discovered the practice of “land art” also called environmental art. Land art is simply using items found in nature to create something of beauty. The piece is generally temporary as they are then left to the elements. Adults and children can enjoy creating this art and truly half of the fun is in the hunt for objects to use.

I spent about 2 days recently collecting stones, branches, husks, pine needles. Anything of the earth is fair game. I started a Pinterest page with examples to inspire me –

That weekend, we created a rock design near our fire pit and I have plans to make a design using branches between two trees. There are so many possibilities and it’s all right there for you to enjoy- for free. The only expense is your time and creativity.

Take a photo of your land art and share it with us by pinning it to my page.
