Ranger Sessions: Environmental art
A chance for children to explore the woodlands and show their discoveries through art. The activities are designed to look at texture, colour and shape. They are a great way to get children to look more closely at nature.
Choose three activities from the options below.
Using anything they can find on the woodland floor, children can have a go at creating a piece of woodland art, either a picture on the ground or even a little sculpture.
In groups children weave pictures to take back to school. The pictures are made from grass and leaves which show the different shapes, textures and species found in the woodland and meadow.
Create a natural colour chart by sticking pieces of leaf, bark, grass and other organic materials onto a piece of card. When the children have finished they will have created a map of their nature walk.
Looking through an empty picture frame children can explore the woodland for a perfect picture. Once they have found their favourite view they have the chance to create a natural picture using only materials from the habitat.
