Flooded by water, wetlands are ecosystems that welcome biodiversity. They are very important landscapes that nourish and heal nature. For World Wetlands Day, we’ll take some time to investigate what makes wetlands so natural at healing and how you can support wetlands in these processes. Using experimental mark-making, resist techniques and alternative printing processes, translate textures into vibrant, multi-dimensional works of art. Collect found, upcycled and natural objects around you to play with textures in paint.
