Get inspired to paint a bird-themed pebble


A Bird Aware Art Fest event

Join Ranger Tony and Ranger Jo this February half term to learn about the Solent’s wonderful winter birdlife and paint a pebble.

Pebbles painted with a curlew and a kingfisher

We’ll start with a short, introductory talk, then we’ll head outside to explore the coast at Royal Victoria Country Park. After our walk, we’ll use the birds we spotted as inspiration for our pebble painting.

This event suitable for adults and children aged 7+.  All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult and supervised at all times.
