Art in the Garden
View an extraordinary garden from the perspective of a child and be whisked away into a magical wonderland full of flowers, fruits, fun and art!
We visited the home of David and Aubin van Berckel, owners of Opus Art Supplies, during Art in the Garden, a 4–day summer camp they held in the backyard of their Bowen Island home. Local children were invited into this lush landscape to explore their own creative gifts, learning about Monet, van Gogh, Klimt and Picasso, artists whose work was inspired by nature.
Rebecca Smith, instructor and art educator, discusses the important role creativity plays in the development of children. Discover how having an outlet to express themselves can unleash a child's hidden potential and give them agency in the world around them.
With the beauty of nature as their artistic playground, the results are truly enchanting and an inspiration for artists of all ages.
