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!

Workshop dynamic:

  • Gathering fruits, flowers and smaller plants.
  • Creating small beads and pellets by pinching plants and flowers with our fingers.
  • Making stamps using leaves and fruits.
  • Crushing natural ingredients in a mortar.
  • Draining sponges with the colours extracted from plants.
  • Grating fruits.


  • Observation of the environment.
  • Using natural elements in a sustainable way during creative practise.
  • Learning to see and value both one’s own work and the environment’s.
  • Unifying theoretical content in practise.
  • Never contributing to the environment’s deterioration; includes green, biodegradable or recycled artwork.
  • Raising awareness about the importance of recycling material.
  • Understanding the relationship between man and earth, the environment and the world.
  • Understanding the environment you’re working in, empathising with it.
