Adult Nature Sketch ~ Toronto

“I’ve taken the Adult course twice. Wonderful!”

“I so enjoyed this, even though I am the least artistic person… This is not an art program. This is not a nature awareness program. It is so much more.”

Our Adult Nature Sketch program is ideal for anyone who wants to reconnect with nature and develop their artistic skills. Guided by a sketch artist and a naturalist, this is an outdoor program for adults that focuses on sketching and observing wildlife habitats in unique ecosystems. This is a weekly class that encourages participants to connect with natural environments in their local community using a pencil and sketchbook, expanding skills in sighting, shading, texture and more. Take a look at the dates and locations below to see where Nature Sketch will take you.

The cost of the program includes 7 weeks of instructional outings guided by an artist and a naturalist and includes a special Nature Sketch book, Nature Sketch Lesson Plans and all sketching materials. We will be covering the foundations of drawing such as line, shape, value, gesture & contour drawing. The program also includes a final exhibition on week 8, where students’ sketches will be framed and hung on display at a local venue. At the end of the exhibition, each participant will take home their framed piece of art.

Appropriate for ages 18+

8 week program, 2.5 hrs per week.
