A lively partnership of artists and scientists, led by artists Isabella Martin and Kaitlin Ferguson, will present the popular Art and Nature Summer School for 2015, now in its fifth year.

Children will have the opportunity to explore the Sainsbury Centre galleries and the rich diversity of the UEA landscape. Using skills from art and science, children will learn about local fauna and flora and get involved with lots of hands-on art making and scientific activity.

This year’s Summer School will explore the art and science of mapping, and look at how environments of all kinds can be translated into visual maps.

On the way we will explore how maps of many different kinds can help us to understand our environment as well as learn about:

  • local biodiversity
  • habitat loss
  • invasive species
  • climate change

Working in the UEA grounds and the Sainsbury Centre, the four days of hands-on making and enquiry will culminate in an exhibition in the Education Studio.
