Last summer a parent dropped off her son for kids art camp and said, “Why can’t I just stay and play with the art materials?”

It was at that moment that Adult Nature Paint Classes were born.

In these dynamic art sessions you will create with the living world and your wild heart. Varied nature inspired art activities are presented, featuring painting, drawing and print making. Designed for both beginners and confident creatives, art encounters invite fresh joyful exploration of nature, materials and processes. Flow, spin, tune in, touch in, explore pattern, be spontaneous, as you ignite a painting practice to call your own.

Try out some of the following: Japanese Sumingashi marbling, acrylic pours, watercolour finger painting with sounds, textures, patterns of birds, shadows clouds, the wind … Spirograph, spin drawing in silks, alcohol inks, gelli plate printing, collage, nature self portraits, plant pigments, mandalas, air dry clay sculpture, string art, cold wax play, to the name a few. Feel free to experiment, find your unique art expression, play & explore or give yourself much needed space and time to go deep into materials you  already know & love.
