Art in Discover Nature

For centuries nature has inspired artists, designers and photographers.
Discover Nature presents a kaleidoscope of patterns, colours and forms. From the opalescent wings of butterflies to the complicated patterns on seashells, from the fine intricacies of birds’ feathers to the geometrical shapes of crystals, all are available for students to draw or photograph.

Teachers can book Discover Nature for the exclusive use of your art class.

Additional information:

  • Session length: 45mins       
  • Cost: £60

Alternatively, students may come outside school hours, at weekends or on school holidays. It is essential to phone ahead if you require butterflies which are not under glass for photography. Telephone Rosemary Stewart 028 9044 0100.
