Autumn is a truly magical season in our woodlands, and we can’t wait to celebrate the wonders it brings. WildArt 2023 invites children to explore these natural havens, to immerse themselves in Irish woodlands, and to set their imaginations free. Through their artistry, we aim to foster a profound connection with our precious natural heritage.” Vieira stated.
