Expressive artsArt workshopSciencesGarden

Explore natural colour creativity challenges with children across Scotland and be amazed and inspired by everyone’s outdoor discoveries.

  • What colour is the sky?
  • How many greens can you find outside?
  • Are there any seasonal colour clues?
  • Why are some creatures colourful and others not?

These are just some of the questions that will be asked while you look at, think about, gather information about and create with natural colour.
