Join us for Nature Journaling - a mixture of scientific observation, creativity and immersion in the natural environment.
Nature journaling is a mixture of scientific observation, creativity and immersion in the natural environment. Bringing nature and art together gives us an appreciation of the natural beauty in our world and will deepen our respect for the environment. Nature provides many opportunities for discovery, creativity and problem solving. Interacting with the natural environment allows us to learn by doing and experimenting with ideas.
Come and join Scott and Liesl from Living Strong Nature Journaling as they take you on a wander to connect with country, learn some of the complex interactions in nature which affect koalas, understand the habitat required by koalas, look for bush signs (tracks and scats) to indicate koala use, understand some of the importance and connection of Aboriginal people to the koala and learn about some local bush tucker along the way.
Create a beautiful nature journaling art page for yourself (using different techniques including drawing, watercolour painting, collage, rubbings and nature stamps) which will help you remember all the experiences and new learnings you have gained.
Cost for this workshop is FREE and includes all materials.
Please bring water and wear clothing and shoes suitable for bush walking. Don't forget your hat!
