Nature Journaling for Kids
Can you count all the leaves on the trees? No, but you can draw them! Nature journaling encourages wonder, creativity, and appreciation for the environment while also teaching drawing skills and scientific inquiry. In this class, we will visit outdoor locations in Concord and explore these landscapes, drawing what we find and experimenting with shapes, color, and perspective. Students will keep a dedicated sketchbook throughout the class and will develop their own style and approach to drawing.
Materials: Everyone should have a dedicated sketchbook, graphite pencils, and coloring pencils. Altogether these materials will cost $25 - $30, but most materials can be found at home.
