Can Earth Art Help Us Heal?


Earth Art isn’t just beautiful, it lifts your spirits, strengthens your connections, and even lessens the effects of mental illness. 

At Natural Earth Paint, we’ve always known that earth art making can change your life. But what is the science behind those changes? We’ve done the research for you.

“Humans are a vital part of the Earth’s ecosystems; we’re deeply connected to nature rather than separate from it. Our oldest, most basic bond is to Mother Earth, the environment around us which we rely on, contribute to, and create with.

Because of our connection, creating with earth-based materials ties us to the world around us as well as our natural selves. Earth-based materials are an extension of our organic bodies, heritages, and histories. 

Creating art to ground yourself in the Earth, your heritage, and your environment provides clarity and reduces anxiety. It provides space to explore individual and communal relationships and our impacts on one another, and finding connections between yourself and the environment helps reduce feelings of isolation and depression.”

So indulge in that painting session, take your time hand-mixing those natural paints, and relish your connection with Mother Earth. After all, it’s for your health!

Visit our blog to learn more about the healing power of earth art. Learn More In need of a little healing this season? We’re offering 10% off our Earth & Mineral Pigments so you can take a much-needed moment to care for yourself.

Are Your Non-Toxic Art Supplies Really Toxin-Free?

Have you ever tried to investigate the ingredients in your favorite conventional art supplies?

Chances are, you had a hard time figuring out what was in them, just like artist and Natural Earth Paint team member Kate Gregory. 

“This year, I found out I had six different severe contact allergies, and my doctor told me that I had to re-assess everything that touched my skin on a daily basis—and I mean EVERYTHING. While going through my makeup, soaps, nail polishes, and more, I realized I hadn’t checked my art supplies. So, I contacted the company that makes the conventional gouache I had lying around from my university days, assuming they’d be able to provide the information I needed. I received this response:

‘Thank you for reaching out to us. Although we are unable to provide the EN-71 or Material Safety Data Sheet for the requested item, rest assured all of our products are tested to ensure their safety. This product is AP-certified non-toxic and conforms to ASTM D-4236 standards. If there is anything else we can help you with, please feel free to reach out to us. Have a great day!’

Which means:

“We’re hiding our ingredients and their safety information from our customers, but just trust us on this one. It’s fine.”

Ugh. If these paints were really non-toxic, what would this company have to hide? These potentially toxic gouache paints were some of the first of my products to be retired.”

Kate’s realization that she couldn’t depend on big-name art supply companies to provide safe products for her creative practice not only changed the way she sourced her art supplies – it also inspired her work at Natural Earth Paint.

Visit our blog to learn more about Kate’s journey! Hear Kate’s Story For our diligent artists who are doing their best to keep toxins out of their studio, we’re offering 10% off our Earth & Mineral Pigments. You deserve to be worry-free when you get creative!
