23 Dec The Colours of Nature
Boys and girls discover the origins of organic colours.
In this workshop, we’ll be working on organic colours in three different ways: painting, inking and transferring. This way, organic materials return to the environment through landscape intervention.
they boost and exercise their psychomotricity. The sense of touch, eye-hand coordination (since it is through eyesight that hand movement is directed), pinching ability (holding or taking objects by opposing the thumb against the index finger), etc. are a set of skills (known as fine motorskills) a child stars developing at a young age and will keep perfecting while growing up.
Dye or pigments can be made from most vegetables; they may not be very stable, yet they’re fun!
