Our new nature-based arts programming was inspired by the thousands of yellow tulip bulbs that are planted each year across the US and world by people of all ages in schools and communities. A daily creative practice based on the life cycle of a yellow tulip is a way for people of all ages to connect with their natural surroundings, senses and themselves. Everyone has access to nature. Taking two minutes or ten minutes to quietly sit, observe and reflect creates an opportunity to be in the “here and now”. Engaging in a daily creative practice also develops self-awareness, promotes positivity and fosters hope.
