Time: 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Age: 11 – 14 yrs
Nature Sketch Art & Science camp 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. We will be exploring natural environments within walking distance of the Gallery & Museum including Beacon Hill Park, the Victoria Inner Harbour, Fishermans Wharf & the Native Plant Gardens at the Royal BC Museum.
At the museum, campers will look closely and sketch natural history specimens within the collection, and make connections between the biodiversity wonders both within and beyond the museum. By the end of the week, campers will create and curate a mini-display of their work within the Natural History Gallery.
