A captivating and fresh exhibition of nature artwork is on show at the Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park until 18 January 2015.

As the key focus of their John Muir Award activity, eight West College Scotland art and design students produced a stunning selection of plant and animal studies, which can now be seen at the Greenock Cut Visitor Centre.

Robert Ayton, the students’ tutor, decided to deliver the John Muir Discovery Award to help make the communication element of their art and design course more exciting. The shared experience also brought the students - who came from a variety of backgrounds - together.

The Award activity was based in Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park, where they spent a day planting trees, and in Benmore Gardens where they were inspired by the flora and fauna that’s native to Inverclyde.

See their artwork on display at Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park’s Greenock Cut Visitor Centre. Open 11am to 3pm, every weekend until 18 January 2015.

Or, if you can’t make it, see their work online.
