Autumnal leaves with overlaid text Nature Arts Award

See the world around you in a new way when you join us on the Discover Arts Award Adventure.

Nature has inspired artists throughout history. In this not-to-be-missed Discover Arts Award series you will be inspired by some of those artists, exploring and investigating art and the natural environment. You will work with a professional artist and a Forest School professional to achieve your award and, as part of the series, you will curate an exhibition at The MERL, showcasing your work, which will be on public display for the rest of the Autumn Term.
