NoKidding! Kids Design Workshop

Design Workshops

The organic painter

As designer, we should always learn from nature and create by minimising the impact on the environment. Only by immersing ourselves in the wild and acquainting with nature may we be truly inspired by the amazing materials the earth has to offer.

In this workshop, we will explore the village and rivers in Lam Tsuen, selecting materials to produce their own organic palette and drawing tools, experience using all natural materials like stones and egg yolk to make paint, and create brushes with twigs and leaves by hand. This activity will guide participants to be more resourceful, experimental and skillful as responsible artists and designers.
