Junior Nature Sketch is a 7 week outdoor nature program for kids 5-12 years of age that focuses on sketching and observing wildlife habitats in unique ecosystems. Guided by a sketch artist and a naturalist, this program encourages children to connect to natural environments in their local community using a pencil and a sketchbook.
Children learn about their local area and wildlife using established eco-literacy principles from world-renowned artist and naturalist, Robert Bateman. The cost of the program includes 7 weeks of ecosystem outings guided by an artist and naturalist, Nature Sketch full lesson plans, a special Nature Sketch Club book, and all sketching materials.
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.
