Natural Painting

Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park

2nd August 2019 : 11am - 3pm

We will be making our own paintbrushes using different plants and sticks and then creating some wonderful paintings.

We will also have a go at using spray squirters over objects placed on paper to create negative images (it will make sense on the day!). Messy warning (aprons provided but wear old clothes).

2 Sessions: 11am – 12pm and 1.30 – 3pm in the outdoor classroom.

Suitable for all ages and no booking necessary. Sorry we cannot take playgroup bookings or groups of more than 10 people.


Dress for mess but aprons provided.

The site has a visitor centre and toilets, including accessible toilet with baby changing facilities.
