Nature’s Ninjas’ – Masters of the Sky – Nature Art Journaling workshop

Let us take off with learning on how to observe nature, compose a sketch, and learn to draw Nature’s Ninjas of the sky with ease. We learn how to create free flowing sketches, use pen and watercolour and maintain a Nature Art Journal.

Creating and maintaining a sketch journal will give a great understanding of our natural surroundings. Children can develop this as a healthy habit and continue on their journey of discovery and learn to keep a journal.

They can fill in with sketches of bird visitors to their balcony, the plants on their terrace as well as documenting their surroundings on a trip or a camp visit. This is a wonderful practice to hone and develop.
