Bundanon Inspire is a free art-marking program for young people aged 12 – 18 that includes artmaking, ecology walks and visits to the Art Museum.

The program spans two-days with attendance on both days required.



Daily schedule and inclusions:

  • 9am Each day, the event begins at Nowra Bus Terminal, Stuart Place, Nowra. Participants will travel to Bundanon on a shuttle bus with a member of Bundanon staff.

  • 5pm Shuttle bus arrives at Nowra Bus Terminal. Event ends.


Day One: Explore the Art Museum and enjoy a guided ecology walk through the Bundanon bushland. Explore water based media & monoprinting to create a triptych that tells your story of water and together, and consider the group’s collective work to notice connections, similarities and differences.

Day Two: In the morning, explore patterns and ecologies of trees in the Bundanon landscape using rubbing and drawing techniques to create a series of visual records. These records will inspire a 3D collage work that narrates a relationship with trees. Collaborate with your peers to curate a conversational forest. In the afternoon, consider what different skies show us and hide from us. Create a tondo (round artwork) where ‘up doesn’t matter’ using pen, pencil and watercolour.
