Avril has over 29 years running day camps where all could experience art making in many forms, combined with studio, the outdoors , laughter, and joy together.

She brings an eclectic energy to the outdoor world.
The benefits to creating art and sounds in nature are well documented to physical and mental health. Research has linked experiences in nature to have positive outcomes on the well being of individuals. Outcomes may include decrease in stress, improve cognitive, sensory and emotional development, and increase in creativity, imagination, perception, focus and memory. These experiences enhance respect for all relations (human and non-human) and brings people together through the love of nature.
Inspiration through nature has evoked creative art from well known artists like Andy Goldsworthy, Robert Smithson and Richard long. We find creative inspiration from nature and create art and sound using only items we find in the natural world. We use sensory based activities to quieten the body and inspire us. We may be inspired by the bird songs to create music or transform collected feathers into interpretive pieces of art. By connecting to nature through a child-led imagination, we allow individuals to express themselves through art and music and sound. The possibilities are endless and only confined by the limits of one’s imagination.
