Bart Fart and Part

Bart - Beach Art

Fart - Forest Art

Part - Park Art

I spent too long in my life thinking, "I am not good at art." My self portrait looks remarkably similar to all of the other stick figures I have drawn in my life. And I still have trouble getting the proportions right.

Luckily, I learned a few years back that I am particularly fond of arranging things in beautiful patterns of texture, colour and space.


1. Take your children to a local forested area, back yard, park, or beach near your home where you can comfortably maintain appropriate social distancing.

2. Before you go, explore and discuss art by one or more of the artists below.

3. At your chosen outdoor location have students / children create art in a way that speaks to them. They can model an artist from above or not. The key is to only use objects found in nature.
