Nature Explorers: Nature Journaling for Home Schoolers
July 23, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Welcome local home school children and parents to a new experimental Wilbur D. May Arboretum program! Join our educator, Katie, for guided outdoor explorations to learn more about the natural world, get better at drawing, and/or just spend time outside with your family.
What is nature journaling?
Nature journaling is an activity for all ages where one spends time sketching & writing about the things that they experience outdoors. This activity does NOT depend on artistic skill, and instead is a pursuit of observation rather than of drawing mastery. Nature journaling is a valuable educational tool for children and adults alike to ask more questions about nature, and in turn develop a mindset more comfortable with scientific inquiry. Getting better at drawing is just a natural side effect of drawing a lot!
