With my own artwork on conservation in hand, one sunny Monday morning in early June I went into Mad Hatter's Nursery to engage with and create some wonderful pictures with twenty-five, four-year-olds, to teach them how important conservation is through art.
The children had lots of fun learning about key ecological subjects such as plastic pollution by colouring in and drawing themselves alongside sea creatures and before dashing off into the garden sun, repeated back to the teachers in class how plastic must not go into the ocean; it must go into the correct recycling bins.
The attention span of four-year-olds is not very long and as I have one of my own, I know how to relate to them and keep them engaged and interested so that they produced some beautiful pieces of art. Thank you for having me Mad Hatter's Nursery, the children and I had a brilliant morning.
The piece has also been featured on Jane Goodall's Roots and Shoots website
