About Us

This program was created with the intention of finding wonder in nature whilst learning about science through art. The fields of science and art compliment each other and when we look into either discipline there are so many interconnections yet to make between creativity and academic knowledge.

Art and science naturally mesh when combined in a learning exploration process. This often leads to finding new insights, possibilities and inspiration to regard some of the more complex problems we face for the future of the human race and caring for our planet.



Combining core learning through interdisciplinary methods these workshops and field experiences can lead us to truly observe and appreciate the many ways that we can connect to our environment. 

macro and micro 

A variety of observation techniques and tools are used to really see the specimens we are exploring.



finding the wonder

The most important pathway in deepening our learning is to find the wonder first.

Processes we might use in the field are guided by each individuals curiosity. 

The experience that we take away from our time in nature always has some impact. It can be incredibly valuable when we have something we create and learn from in responding to our encounters creatively.
