Nature is full of colours and they’re not just nice to look at! Did you know that photosynthesis, pollination, and seed dispersal are all impacted by the colour of plants? Or that humans have harnessed natural pigments to use in dyes and paints from as far back as 40,000 years ago? From hidden ecological functions to sources of creativity, these hues are cool for all sorts of reasons!

Join us at Downsview Park as we dive deeper into the importance of nature’s colours and how we can use them as a creative outlet. We’ll talk about pigments, make some watercolour paints, and do some painting!

All ages and art abilities welcome.

Please note: This program will be taking place at the Downsview Park Orchard. 

Other: Please bring a small container if you would like to take your paint home.
