The art course at schumacher college

Those good people at Schumacher College, Dartington, have offered citizens of the republic a 20 per cent discount on its Creating Nature: Art in the Landscape course, if they mention the People’s Republic of South Devon when they book.

The course ‘will explore unique ways to work within the landscape to create works of art that help our understanding and protection of nature and our enjoyment of art’.

The teachers on the course are pretty cool too.

Susan Derges is a photographer. She has created a major commission for the Eden Project’s new Education Resource Centre in Cornwall and has exhibited her work around the world.

Lynne Hull has pioneered “trans-species” art, creating sculpture installations as wildlife habitat enhancement and eco-atonement for human impact. She has worked in the American West and eight other countries with a variety of wildlife agencies.

James Marriott is a writer, artist, activist and naturalist. He is a co-director of PLATFORM, which since 1983 has brought together artists and activists to create projects and campaigns that help the struggle for ecological & social justice.

Satish Kumar, programme director at the college and narrator of the BBC 2 programme Earth Pilgrim told the PRSD: “The wondrous, awesome beauty of the natural world is both the artist’s muse and the artist’s toolkit. As humans we are inherently creative, and on this course we look to nature and learn by Divine example how to design intelligently and create something of intrinsic beauty.”
