Wednesday WildArt walks with Mimi and Kiri

Wednesday WildArt walks with Mimi and Kiri
Starting Wednesday 23rd January 10am until 12m

Connecting the natural beauty of the Nower woods Dorking through art and mindfulness!!

Come and join Kiri and I on a creative mindful journey of the senses and imagination as we create Wild art pieces to document our nature wanderings and explorations of the beautiful Nower woods.

We will explore different art techniques each week to capture the ever-changing seasonal flora and fauna, local wildlife, fungi and trees that connect and grow and live around us through sketching, printing, we will listen to seasonal poetry and songs to inspire our walks and art, we will ignite our imaginations as we go in search for hidden faces within the tree whorls and bark, we will investigate the textures of the woodland using a variety of art mediums to record what we see. We will even have a go at making and finding our own art resources and tools from natural paintbrushes, natural dyes and charcoal. We will gather natural materials on our wild wanderings too and add to our scrapbooks at our Forest school site and as needs and weather demands we will build a fire and cook a warm snack as we journal, chat and eat together.
