Join us for a relaxing mandala making session using natural and mixed media materials. Through our conversation and art making together, we will explore our connections with art & nature reflecting on how and why they can benefit our wellbeing.
This drop-in session concludes the activity of the Art & Nature Connections project, led by Green Tree Arts in collaboration with members of Moray & Highland Communities. Through their research activity, they have found that creativity and nature can help us to express how we are feeling, creating space for discovery and reflection, and key to this is the companionship and building meaningful connections with others.
This mandala session will be informative, empowering, and fun. Alongside this, we will share film, artwork, poetry, and photography created within the project, inviting you to explore your own relationships with art & nature further in response to what you see.
This participatory research project has been exploring the experience of using both digital and outdoor environments to engage and enhance wellbeing using art & nature and is supported by Ideas Fund (British Science Association). Funded by Wellcome Trust.
