Pigments of nature

60 minutes
€ 115

What colors do we find in nature? We observe our environment to discover them, reveal how natural pigments were extracted in the past and we will experiment to extract our pigments from fruits and vegetables. Then, we will see paintings of volcanic landscapes made by renowned artists from La Garrotxa and we will become artists to make a work of art with our natural paints. An activity where science and art go hand in hand.

An Eruption of Colours
You’ll feel what it is to be a volcanologist, to discover through experimentation, what a volcano is like, its different parts and that not all volcanoes are the same. You’ll then get the chance to create your own volcano and make it erupt. After that we’ll be looking at a traditional drystone wall, and we’ll play with creating constructions from volcanic materials, just like the people of La Garrotxa did, many years ago; the idea is to show the close relationship between volcanoes and people that has formed part of this region’s identity.
Watch out, is there an eruption coming?
Is a volcanic eruption coming? In this activity, we reveal the mysteries of the Earth’s interior and experiment to discover that waves created inside the Earth are responsible for earthquakes. We will then put ourselves in the shoes of geologists who are experts in building a tool capable of detecting earthquakes and possibly volcanic eruptions. We will make our seismograph.
Let’s explore the Garrotxa
Discover the territory of La Garrotxa through an escape room at the Espai Cràter. The activity invites you to get to know the territory, realize how the landscape is transformed over time, and become aware of its value. During the activity, participants reflect on the impact of human activity on the landscape to learn about the need to take care of the territory and adopt sustainable living habits.
