Majjistral Park Kids – ‘My Nature Diary 2021’ (Session 2 – February)

February 6 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Majjistral Park Event February
Join our Events Officer for the next Nature Diary session to start adding species to your February page!
Each month throughout 2021 Majjistral Park will be hosting an online activity demonstrating how to draw wildflowers, insects, birds, mammals and more.
This activity is aimed at children but adults can also join in if they want to!

 

Details:
Date: Saturday 6th February 2021
Time: 15:00 – 16:00
Duration: Approximately 1 hour
During our second session for February we will be drawing and painting a Weasel (Ballotra), a mammal which lives in the countryside of the Maltese Islands.

 

Materials needed:
– Photo of the species (will be shared with you before the session)
– Paper*
– Hole punch
– Ruler
– Pencil
– Rubber
– Sharpener
– Newspaper (to protect surface from paint splatter)
– Paint (ideally watercolor)**
– White paint (I find gouache works best)
– Water pot filled with water
– Palette to mix paint in
– Kitchen towel
– Soft paint brushes (thin and medium sizes)
– Rough paper to test colours

 

*To create the whole diary you will need 13 pieces that are the same size. The best paper to use if you are using watercolours is watercolour paper. I bought a watercolour pad so I didn’t have to cut the paper! If you do not have watercolour paper sketch book paper is also fine. This might not be as good for painting but coloured pencils could be used.
**Can be substituted with coloured pencils or poster paint but watercolour works best! Better quality watercolours will give better results. I buy mine from local art shops. You do not have to buy the most expensive ones and you also do not need to buy all the colours. We will need: cadmium red, alizarin crimson, ultramarine blue, cobalt blue, lemon yellow, cadmium yellow, yellow ochre, and burnt umber.
