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 explore our home environments, draw what we find, and experiment with shapes, color, and perspective. Students will keep a dedicated sketchbook throughout the class and will develop their own style and approach to drawing. There will be in-person, socially distanced field trips to Concord-area conservation land where we can discover new plants, animals, and more!
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.
Classes not held in-person will be held virtually using Zoom and Google Classroom depending on the teacher’s preference. During field trips, everyone will be required to wear a mask and appropriately social distance. Any questions about social distancing protocol can send inquiries to Caroline Provost at email@example.com.
