Enjoyable and informative eco-art workshops for children will be presented at Kirstenbosch by Sue Nepgen, art and environmental educationalist. Activities on the theme of ‘A Joyful Look at Plants and Water’ include an introductory discussion, a guided walk next to the shallow waterways and other relevant parts of the Garden, as well as video-microscope investigation of plants and aquatic life. The highlight of the session is the creating by each child of their own artistically painted 3-D clay model of landscapes with rivers, including indigenous plants and other modelling materials. Opportunities for watercolour painting will form part of the session. Experienced assistants will be at hand to ensure safety and individual attention.
