My Nature Diary Painting Activity (Session 8)

August 7, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

My Nature Diary Painting Activity (Session 8)
Join our next Nature Diary online painting activity!


Each month throughout 2021 Majjistral Park we will be hosting an online activity demonstrating how to draw wildflowers, insects, birds, mammals and more.
For the month of August we will be drawing and painting dolphins – specifically the three species that are found close to the Maltese Islands.


This activity is aimed at children but adults are welcome too.



Date: Saturday, 7th August 2021
3:00-4:00 pm
Approximately 1 hour


Materials needed:
Paper*, Pencil, Rubber, Newspaper (to protect surface from paint), Paint (ideally watercolour)**, White
paint (poster/acrylic/gouache), Water pot filled with water, Palette to mix paint in, Old t-shirt/ material (to
wipe brushes), Soft paint brushes (thin and medium sizes), Rough paper to test colours.


*To create the whole Nature Diary you will need 13 pieces that are the same size. The best paper to use
if you are using watercolours is watercolour paper. You can use paper from a watercolour pad so that
you do not need to cut the paper. If you do not have watercolour paper thick painting paper (eg.
sketching paper) should also be ok but it would be a good idea to test it with your paint first.


**Watercolour paints can be substituted with coloured pencils or poster paint but watercolour works
best! Windsor & Newton (student range) watercolour paints are not too expensive and can be bought
from local art shops. The main colours you need are: cadmium red, alizarin crimson, ultramarine blue,
cobalt blue, lemon yellow, cadmium yellow, yellow ochre, and burnt umber.
