Anyone looking for an arty activity for a May weekend should look no further than The Cairngorms Nature Big Weekend.
Dava School House will host “Painting with Nature”, a morning workshop with award-winning artist Morvan MacEwan on Sunday May 12.
The day will involve exploring the local woodland and moors, collecting items to be used in a new piece of art. Materials and refreshments will be provided.
The workshop runs from 9.30am-12.30pm and costs £15 per person.

2017 is shaping up to be a busy one for us.
We’ve updated our calendar on the What’s On page. Please check it out and mark down the important dates for the diary. And keep a look out for more during the year – we won’t be ignoring any opportunity to share our work!
You’ll also find dates for workshops. At the moment, the only one on the cards is silk painting with Rona Smith. This is a chance to have a go at a delicate art technique that produces wonderful results.
