  • When you hear the word 'spring' what do you think and what does it make you feel?

    To help us with this let's visit the Bluebell Wood at Logan Botanic Garden, where you can take time to use your senses. Which colours can you spot? Look for the different shapes in the woods. What sounds do you hear? How does it make you feel?

  • Explore our photo collection of spring flowers for inspiration to use for your creation!

    Take a look at the photo collection either by using our spring collage or use the 'Spring Flowers Gallery' underneath the collage.

  • A helpful first step in designing your creation is to think about which colours you want to use. This is called creating a colour palette and can really help bring your spring flower to life.

    Use the resources in this section to explore different ways to find spring colours.

    • To save printing we suggest printing a handful which can be laminated and reused. An accessible version is available in Word document format.

  • Why not listen to sounds of spring while you create?

    Go outside and take in the sounds around you or listen to our sounds of spring in this section.

  • In this section let's meet some of our botanical artists and see how they bring plants to life through art!

    Be inspired by seeing our botanical artists in action in the timelapse video below.
