Welcome to NatureArt Lab

We are a multi-award-winning Australian art school and environmental education centre.

Our art classes are located in Canberra and Brisbane plus online - and we have programs that can take you anywhere with our Australian and international immersive art nature tours. We believe that when people engage nature through art, it fosters a deep connection of custodianship to this country and a care for nature.

What Do We Do?

NatureArt Lab unites communities through art inspired by nature. We provide short art courses, photography courses and workshops. Our classes are currently offered at studio locations in Canberra and Brisbane.

We offer immersive nature tours in Australia and around the world, with short art and photography courses including:

  • Nature photography
  • Art workshops
  • Nature journaling
  • Bird watching
  • Nature walks
