Kitimat Museum & Archives is being funded to run a Nature Sketch program through the Robert Bateman Foundation, available to two age groups; youth ages 8 to 12, and ages 13 to 18.
The Nature Sketch program is an outdoor nature program for kids that focuses on sketching and observing wildlife habitats in unique ecosystems. Guided by a local sketch artist and a naturalist, this program encourages children to connect to natural environments in their local community using a pencil and a sketchbook.
Nature Sketch, a Bateman Foundation initiative, aims to inspire appreciation of the natural world using a pencil and a sketchbook, offering a cultural lens for exploring the outdoors. You will learn about the wildlife and different habitats using established eco-literacy principles and sketching inspiration from world-renowned artist and naturalist Robert Bateman.
“The Bateman Foundation was established in 2012 and is a national public charity that uses art to connect Canadians to nature, combatting the increased levels of depression and anxiety caused by nature deprivation and the ever-increasing prevalence of screens in our lives.” John Bateman
