Kids Education

I am a professional scrimshaw artist and volunteer with the Junior Naturalist program at our local nature center. I want to introduce them to drawing nature and wonder if you have any guidelines for that type of discussion and demonstration. Kids 8-12 years old.

Linda,

You may be interested in the curriculum created by educator and naturalist, John Muir Laws. His curriculum, Opening the World Through Nature Journaling, was created in conjunction with the Calfornia Native Plant Society and is available for free. I featured John's curriculum on my educational website this past December. Learn more about John and his curriculum here.

You may also be interested in past teaching and learning articles about drawing plants and nature. I post a link to my weekly column in the "Teaching & Learning" section of the site (scroll down a bit to see this section along the right margin of the site).

I hope this is of some help to you.
