10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join the long tradition of nature journaling by creating drawings in Duke Gardens. Sketch the details of your plant and animal observations to record them for later use. Focus on shape, line, and texture as we explore the versatility of pencil drawings.Use art to hone your observation skills and express yourself! Art can communicate everything from how you are feeling to the close relationship between a caterpillar and its host plant. This season, focus on the interactions between plants and animals as we explore a new medium each week. We'll explore habitats, uncover wildlife and identify plants while learning about art and making our own. Classes will include time to investigate the garden, make connections, create art and share work with the group. Join us for the full series or sign up for individual workshops. All materials provided unless otherwise noted. Programs for children ages 9-12. Location: Meet at the Doris Duke Center.
