Students are encouraged to bring along their journals/sketchbooks and drawing materials for this interactive workshop.
The workshop will explore:
How to be mindful in nature and how to see what is around us
How to draw in nature – our toolkit and quick tips
How to develop a nature journal
These workshop are very timely after a year of lockdown when we have had all had a time to focus on nature and what is in our local biosphere. While the world is trying to address issues relating to climate change and biodiverisity loss, it is important as artists to take note of what is around us (the birds, trees, weather patterns etc). We can create records of the present and through our observations can be catalysts for change and transformation.
By getting to know the biodiversity around us, we are better able to become guardians to protect it.
