Now, more than ever, exploring close to home is a way to turn the small and modest into the infinite and boundless. The Nature Explorer’s Sketchbook helps kids look more closely at nature and capture what they discover. If you like exploring nature or drawing or both, this session is for you! Meet the author, Jean Mackay, ask questions, and draw along with Jean as she shares some activities and tips from the book to spark your curiosity.
Bring paper and a pencil, colored pencils, pens, or markers to this session, along with an object from nature (e.g., leaf, rock, mushroom, flower, seeds, shells, etc.). This session is especially suited to the 10+ old artist, explorer or nature lover in your world (and adults who have wanted to try nature journaling).
Artist and educator Jean Mackay has been exploring and sketching nature for more than 25 years. Working in all kinds of settings, from tide pools to farm fields to her own backyard in Upstate New York, Jean’s nature journals reflect a keen eye for detail and profound sense of wonder. She teaches each summer at the Hog Island Audubon Camp in Maine.
