Walk among the beautiful trees in your local green space and draw your favourite ones.

In this free downloadable activity pack, artist Alexa Lowe takes you on a tree adventure in Southwark Park. The activity pack is brimming full of creative ideas, with easy-to-follow instructions to keep children busy and entertained. To accompany the pack Alexa has created a fun video with speaking trees, additional tips and more visual guides.

Download ‘A Southwark Park Adventure’ Family Activity Pack

A Southwark Park Adventure is the first in the series of our Spring family activity packs. These activities are suitable for a wide range of ages but are particularly aimed for children aged 5 to 10-year-olds for families to play and create together.

The materials needed have been kept to a minimum so you should be able to get stuck in using items you already have at home.  Or you can email learning@southwarkparkgalleries.org and we will send you the physical activity pack and materials in the post if you feel you would benefit.

The free physical packs have been very popular. To make sure we have enough available for families who need them, please only get in touch if you are unable to print at home and do not have art materials such as paper, pens and pencils.

If you need this in preparation for February Half-Term please contact us by Wednesday 10th February so we can ensure it will be delivered before the break.

Share your artwork

If you do the activities we would love to see them on social media by using the hashtag #SPGfamilyArtAndEcology or you can also email photos of your work to learning@southwarkparkgalleries.org

Alexa Lowe is an artist interested in exploring the voice of the mark, through a range of materials and methods. She is interested in how the process of making brings thoughts into being and works with different community groups to encourage and further develop creative expression for all.

A Southwark Park Adventure is made possible thanks to the generous support of RIVA (Residencies in Visual Art), Arts Council England and Southwark Council.
