Autumn is well and truly underway here in Durham and the leaves are turning beautiful shades of red, yellow and brown. Our painting with plants workshop covers a range of topics including: chemical reactions, identifying leaves and also getting creative with paints made from different plants.

More able or older children┬ácan go into more detail with labelling their drawings, and painting extra details on their leaves. Most of all it’s great fun and quite messy so the children love it!

The colours also match quite well with the changes in leaves during the Autumn so these leaves could form the basis of a Autumnal classroom display.
