We are proud supporters of the Threatened Species Children’s Art Competition and we will be working on entries to submit as part of the class. Our kids created amazing artworks last year and some went on to win awards! We will also be working on one large group entry to enter into the competition.

NatureArt Kids is located in the Australian National Botanic Gardens, where we have access to the amazing range of biodiversity living within the gardens and collections.

We are also grateful to have support from The Green Shed, who have kindly donated supplies for the program. We use natural, recycled and eco-friendly materials to teach our kids it is important to care for the earth.

All materials and art supplies are provided. Children must bring a hat, drink bottle and packed lunch.
