What is Organic Arts?
By definition, organic means, “denoting a relation between elements of something such that they fit together harmoniously as necessary parts of a whole.” We acknowledge that, inasmuch as the western culture would like to compartmentalize every area of life (we learn at school, exercise at the gym, worship in church…), everything we do and say releases a reaction into all realms of our lives. Slowing down to enjoy a sunset can inspire poetry that has been cultivating deep within our hearts. Caring for creation is an act of worship. The garden is our grocery store, gym, and tanning salon. Organic Arts is appreciating humble beginnings, savoring the process, and celebrating around the harvest table, spiritually, emotionally, and physically in unity. Organic Arts, in our opinion, consists of intentional living, creativity, and community.
Intentional living is thoughtful. It is not a lifestyle driven by convenience, but looks beyond itself and into the lives of others, as well. How can our choices better ourselves, our families and friends, our community, our land, and the world? Intentional living is a life rich in experiences, memories, dreams, expression, and fulfillment. Everything has a deeper purpose and richer beauty.
In every day, every meal, every housecleaning, every interaction with young and old, people and plants, birds and beasts, trees and seeds, creativity is waiting to be released. Creatives are alert and looking, finding beauty and learning how to partner with it in their unique ways. Activating the creative inside everyone we touch is our goal.
As a community of organic artisans, we unlock each other’s dreams, encourage in times of growth and pruning, support one another, and create a safe place to grow and just be. This is a community reconnecting to creation through work parties, harvest celebrations, farm-to-table dinners, and so much more. If you would like to be involved in any way, whether you are local or on the other side of the globe, we would like to keep in touch with you.

Our team currently consists of Organic Arts Collective and Riddlelove founder, Katie Riddle and two co-founders, Lauren Allen & Kathryn Nordyke. Our heart is to connect ourselves to creation as a day-to-day, intentional lifestyle and grow with a community who wants to do the same. Join the collective by signing up for our newsletter and following our accounts on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
