There is still space available for Nature Sketch sessions on June 5th and 19th, for ages 13 to 18.
The sessions are FREE, with supplies included. This is an outdoor nature program that focuses on observing local ecosystems and sketching what you observe. Register at the Kitimat Museum & Archives today.
Sketching nature promotes knowledge, understanding, and connection to the environment, and the act itself is a mindful one: taking the time to stop, look and sketch can be a useful tool for managing anxiety and depression.
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.
