One of the core teachings of the week-long Art For the Sky experience, led by artist Daniel Dancer, is physically experiencing the concept of impermanence. Each of Dancer’s school residencies culminates with children and teachers taking the form of a giant living and breathing piece of art by becoming “drops of paint” in an image drawn upon their playing field. The two-hundred-foot-wide figures of animals such as salmon, bear, or bighorn sheep only make sense when seen from high above, and this is a central point of the art. Immanuel Kant said that “for peace to reign on Earth humans must evolve into new beings who have learned to see the whole first.”
