Are you looking to explore and capture the beauty of nature through the arts? Throughout this session, we will explore incorporating nature journaling into your programming to instill an appreciation for, and understanding of, the natural world. Additionally, you will learn how working with pastel, pencil and unique art techniques can enhance a nature experience. Through this hands-on session, registrants will learn how to help youth develop their observation and drawing skills, as well as think critically about the artistic process.
