Free Art in Nature Workshop

Free Art in Nature Workshop


Moray Art Centre in partnership with @Wild things! Environmental Education in Action, @wellbeingmoray and artist, Iona Leishman Art have created a workshop programme to promote calm and boost people’s mental health.

Spending time in nature and turning our minds to creativity can help us feel more positive.

No art experience necessary – just turn up and give it a go!

You may be experiencing post-lockdown nerves, dealing with long term mental health issues or feeling anxious – come with us into the woodlands and dunes around Moray Art Centre in Findhorn to engage with nature and see those creative juices flow.

Wild Things will set the scene to help us appreciate the creatures, habitats, sights and smells of this beautiful environment. Artist Iona Leishman will then help us create joint or individual pieces using found objects and arts materials based on our experience of the outdoors. All abilities welcome from absolute beginners to seasoned artists.

The Art in Nature Workshop is a 6 week programme and those joining us will receive the most benefit by coming to each workshop in the 6 week period. However, if you are interested but cannot commit to every workshop please still drop us a line and we may be able to fit you in! For further details just email We hope to roll out workshops for all ages in the future but this programme is for those 18 years old and above.

With HUGE thanks to the Foundation Scotland Small Grants Scheme @foundationscotland for making this possible!
