Event Description

This 7-week Junior Nature Sketch course is guided by children’s author-illustrator and nature sketch artist, Sue Macartney.

Using eco-literacy principles from world-renowned artist and naturalist, Robert Bateman, Nature Sketch encourages children to connect to natural environments in their local community using a pencil and a sketchbook.

The cost of the program includes 7 weeks of ecosystem outings guided by an artist and naturalist, and a special Nature Sketch Club book.

Many children spend more than 6 hours per day on screens, and less than 30 minutes per week in nature. Nature Sketch aims to change that – encouraging fun, developing creativity and building confidence along the way.

The health and safety of our Nature Sketch participants, instructors and volunteers is of the utmost importance to us. Due to COVID-19 we are adding new protocols and will continue to monitor and comply with provincial updates and directives. A full list of protocols is available on our website.

For this class, locations may include Swan Lake Nature Sanctuary, Esquimalt Lagoon, Francis King Park, Elk/Beaver Lake, Gorge Waterway and Cattle Point.

Date: Every Saturday between May 1 - June 12, 2021
Time: 10 AM - 12 PM

Price: $140.00

Supplies Needed:

HB pencil
White eraser
Water bottle
Nut-free snack
Backpack to carry stuff
We will supply sketchbooks.
