Drawing From Nature
Friday, June 22, 2018
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Grades 4 thru 6
Draw inspiration from the wonders of nature while learning the art of Nature Journaling.
Nature Journaling is a proven way to help children become aware of the environment around them and develop their sense of connection with it. In this workshop artist/teacher Vicky Katzman will introduce students to historical artists and naturalists whose works were inspired by nature, before exploring outdoors to begin creating entries in journals of their own. Drawing tips and exercises will place emphasis on strong observation and mindful recording of facts and feeling rather than creating a beautiful picture. Participants are encouraged to continue using their nature journals as part of their daily lives as learners.
This is a hands-on workshop, rain or shine. Nature Journals will be provided. Bring drinking water, and don't forget sunscreen and a hat.
This program will be limited to 10 participants. Early registration is recommended.
Program cost is $15.00 for Arboretum Members, $20.00 for Non-Members
