Junior NatureSketch Club Toronto

Junior NatureSketch is an outdoor nature program for kids that focuses on sketching and observing wildlife habitats in unique ecosystems. Guided by a sketch artist and a naturalist, this program encourages children to connect to natural environments in their local community using a pencil and a sketchbook.

The cost of the program includes 9 weeks of ecosystem outings guided by a naturalist, sketching instruction, a special NatureSketch Club book, and all sketching materials. The program also includes a final exhibition on week 10 where the children’s sketches will be framed and hung on display at a local venue. Appropriate for ages 5-12 yrs. 10 week program, 2 hrs per week.
