Art for Children

Sente a Natureza


A deeper connection to the Natural World

Creative Expression Atelier

Welcome to Sente a Natureza

In this sharing space, multi-sensorial activities will be oriented in the area of drawing, painting, and constructions, with elements and materials directly from the land. These activities are designed for children from 7 to 12 years old.
In the conventional education system, some children still have no space to expand their gifts, skills, and creativity. Children need to return to their Essence, to the integral being that they are.
Each being, came into this world to honor their gifts and talents, in service to the community, to create a world with more harmony.
It doesn’t matter what your gifts are… The most important thing is to use them in the service of the greater good. Always placing our heart and love in what we do, whatever its expression.

We are all sources of divine expression

Here are some topics we are going to develop:

~Re-discover new senses and develop a love for Nature

~Expand imagination and creativity

~Create memories with and in Nature

~Respect each being of the Earth

~Learn basic notions about Art

~Co-create in partnership with the Universe

~Nurturing our planet with love, harmony, and beauty

~To listen to the voice of the heart and soul

~Re-discover new meaning and magic in the natural world

And so much more…

A nest…
A few months ago, a little bird built its nest here near our house and used this plant, the Tillandsia usneoides (better known as Old Man’s Beard). They were already born, and soon they start to fly.
In this nest, I used this plant and instead of the traditional eggs, I used painted avocado pear seeds. You can paint, or leave to the natural the seeds you choose. Through its seeds, each fruit contains a message of abundance, of multiplication. Protect your nest, and plant your seeds when you can in an Edible Garden.
Use the materials you have available in your home. Everything can be recreated, just imagine.
Build your nest and share your experiences.


Hello, my name is Cristina, I was born and live on Madeira Island, in the North Atlantic Ocean. This is where I get the greatest inspiration to create, as it is an island blessed with magnificent expressions of Nature, that are in some places in their purest and wildest state.

For more than 20 years, I have been dedicated to painting and other forms of artistic expression. It took a lot of resilience and patience to find the means and tools to bring my dreams to life. Fortunately, with the Internet, this great network that unites us, a whole world of new possibilities and hope has opened up.
Directly from my studio, I will share with you everything I have learned over the years, and I hope to be able to help you and make your journey lighter and more beautiful.

In this sharing space, we will create and find the tools to expand and develop creativity, and beyond. We will focus on total surrender to the creative process.
Art is something substantially internal, a way of breathing and living.
We will create with our Hands, with our Imagination, and especially with our Hearts. So that, in a fluid way, magic can enter and give body to your dreams.


How do your Painting Classes and Courses work?
They are one on one or in small groups, to give you a deeper understanding, in line with your needs and goals. The painting classes are limited and personalized.

We also offer individual painting classes, live in Nature.
