Wild Roots Studio offers a variety of soulful art workshops that support the wild exploration of our creativity and connect us to the seasons going on around and within us.
Wild Roots was created out of a desire to be connected and present in the moment! Life is busy, full of deadlines, responsibilities and little time is left to connect to our true selves and to each other in meaningful ways. We think it's easier to let it all go, find peace and find connection while creating art, dancing, doing yoga and especially, when we are in nature. So we thought why not offer workshops that assist us in creating the time to connect to ourselves, each other and to the ecosystems we live in.
“Nothing can substitute for walking in nature, hearing birds, looking for shells on the beach, watching the daily growth of a flower in the garden. From the very beginning of life it is vital to maintain the link between the child and nature.” -Maria Montessori
Adults Love Nature & Art Too. In addition to our Children's Nature Art Workshops, we also offer adult earth art classes & women's circles. It is our goal to create a space for adults to let go, connect and be creative.

Syncing To Nature Rhythms. We love to connect our art workshops to the current seasons, moon cycles or natural rhythms of the environment we live in. In this we can often find gratitude, new awareness and a peace in syncing into our own natural rhythm. This may mean celebrating with wild passion in the summer season and seeking a quiet, cozy space to create from in the frosty months.
Lets Make Art Outside. We love creating art outdoors. In the summer, you may find us teaching at a local farm (CSA), park or wilderness area. In the colder months we love using the time to explore our inner landscapes and create nature-based crafts in cozy spaces.
We Are All artists. We don't believe in giving art lessons. We believe in offering tools, supplies, some guidance and letting you go wild. There is no good art or bad art. No right or wrong way. It's all about having fun.
