Drawing at the Pond
60 minute art classes taught at the Nature Center
To give students a better toolbox to appreciate and illustrate the natural world around us.
For example, the class may walk around the pond, taking note of animals, plants, and the various textures of the items we find. Conversation may focus on shapes and terms such as “symmetry” and “asymmetry” and what makes a healthy pond. Following the walk, students may draw their own ponds applying what was learned and talked about.
Enrollment is for three one-hour classes
