Nature Sketch Challenge

14 Apr, 2020

“Tuning-in to the everyday beauty of nature becomes part of a journey which connects us more deeply to the natural world. As people’s appreciation of natural beauty increases, so does their happiness. We respond to beauty - it restores us and balances our emotions. This, in turn, encourages people to do more to help wildlife and take action for nature.” - Dr Miles Richardson, Director of Psychology, University of Derby

We have teamed up with Dubai based artist Emma Skinner, to celebrate the beauty of some local marine species on instagram.

Get involved by drawing or painting a picture of your favourite local species. Research some facts- are their lives more complex than you thought? Why not illustrate your artwork and share on social media, tag us to earn an EXPLORE badge.
