NB– this workshop starts at 9.30am and finishes at 11.30am
Julie and Rachel will be sharing information and ideas about the plants and animals in your local area that are threatened. You can also come with ideas about a threatened species you already know about however for this competition, these must be species that are or have been native to NSW.
We will be creating collaborative and individual 2D artworks for participants to enter in the 2018 Threatened Species Art Competition which is open to children aged 5-12yrs of age living in NSW and the ACT.
The Threatened Species Children’s art competition helps children unleash their artistic creativity while learning about the extinction crisis facing our native plants and animals. It aims to encourage the next generation of environmental leaders.
We aim to have one collaborative artwork that will be entered into the competition representing Blue Mountains Home Ed Network and each participant will create their own individual work.
Cost: $18 HEA members/$20 non-members
