10:00 am - 11:30 am
Mark the date, October 19th, ‘Introduction to Nature Journaling’
Learn a bit about note taking, so we may go outside with paper & pencils to record observations during a short nature sit. We will also briefly discuss nature drawing & poetry to mesh art, science & writing for a deeper understanding of the natural world. We’ll sketch our observations in the field & jot down some detailing & descriptive words. We’ll ask questions, & discover new ways of seeing, of experiencing life around us.
Nature Journaling will be an intergral part of our journey this year, & next. I will be encouraging their use during our meetings & at home. I expect they will prompt the children’s curiousity, reinforce their knowledge base & their love of the outdoors. It will be fun to see their expressions of the world through drawing, colouring, as well as, writing facts & feelings.
We have been provided with blank journals & note taking supplies, so just bring appropriate attire (plus some water) & your keen sense of observation!
where: Meet in the basement classroom at the KCIC (KC Irving Centre at Acadia). We will then, after some discussion, head outdoors behind the environmental centre.
when: October 19th, 10am
what to bring: Weather appropriate attire & some Water.
