Art in parks: bringing art, science and nature together

27 August 2017 until 19 November 2017

Immerse yourself in art and parks... 

Art in Parks is a series of worskhops held in the SA Murray-Darling Basin (SAMDB) region during August to November 2017 bringing together art, science and nature. Each art class will be different and all classes will have guest speakers from collaborating scientists who are undertaking work in that park along with the art teacher.

Natural Resources SAMDB has some amazing scenic locations and to be able to showcase our beautiful parks combined with an arts program will help bring people to the great outdoors who normally might not visit. So join us for one of more iof the following workshops!
