Details

This new watercolour painting day, suitable for all levels, offers participants the chance to study
different types of butterflies and other pollinators in both an artistic and scientific way. It will examine the essential and fascinating relationship between plants and their pollinators. Each student will have their own dedicated microscope for the day, as well as beautiful insect specimens – to study how insects pollinate and how they obtain food from plants. Participants will then use either a microscope and specimen or macro photographic material to produce a detailed and unique piece of art to take home.
