We have a fun new summer workshop for you to consider, taught by our awesome Math & Science teacher, Gracie Tauch:
Nature Journaling will meet for two hours on select dates. This workshop is for anyone who can use a pencil and follow instructions (that is, ages 5 to 100)!
Nature Journaling is the regular recording of observations, perceptions, and feelings about the natural world around you. Learn how to not judge your drawings (you aren’t an artist yet!), and use the scientific process to record what you see in this moment in time.
We will spend a few minutes talking about the season, the weather, as well as the animals and plant life before going outside or sitting near a window to practice. Work-shoppers will be shown various examples of what a Nature Journal can look like and use these examples to create their own.
The first session will be on how to begin a nature journal. Each session will include one or more projects, ideas and crafts to go along with and put into your journal. Each meeting will be independent from those before, so if you miss one, that is still fine.
The cost: $15 each 2hour workshop, payable to Learn Beyond The Book
Meeting at Learn Beyond The Book, unit 480
Date: Thursday, Aug. 27
