National Eucalypt Day: Art workshop - nature journaling workshop with Paula Peeters
9:30am to 12:30pm
Suitable for ages 15+
Pick up a pencil and notebook, and discover the trees of the gardens in a new way. The practice of drawing or writing in response to nature (nature journaling) sharpens your observation skills while also allowing you a quiet, relaxing experience immersed in nature. The workshop will take you through beginner exercises that show you that anyone can write and draw.
Paula Peeters is an ecologist, artist and writer who has been studying, drawing and writing about trees for most of her life. This session will include the identification of some eucalypts and their relatives, a discussion of their ecology and evolution, and the creation of your own nature journal pages using colour materials.
