Inspired by Nature is a visual arts enrichment program in the creative domain for high potential and gifted public school students in Year 3 and Year 4. This one day learning experience is held at the Royal National Park. Students will explore the local environment, learn art theory, and produce a range of ephemeral and permanent artworks.
