During Art and Nature Camp, campers will learn how artists are inspired by nature for artwork, use natural objects for art making, and advocate for nature through artwork. During their time at the Southern Vermont Arts Center, young artists will use traditional art making practices as well as experiment with contemporary materials. The students’ work will share the beauty of nature and raise awareness about the impact people have on nature’s beauty and life on our planet.
About David Paarlberg-Kvam:
David Paarlberg-Kvam is a Vermont-based artist and art teacher at the Dorset School. He received his MFA in Painting in 2010 and has lived with his family in Southern Vermont since 2014. Paarlberg-Kvam has a close relationship with nature and processes of growth and decay. His work reflects an appreciation for nature’s great variety and drama. He pours color puddles and pools over large panels, and he articulates competing marks that add layers, depth and confusion to his images. The dialogue is playful, dynamic and fantastical. Through his teaching practice and summer programs, he hopes to share his excitement for art making and passion for nature advocacy.
