Early natural historians explored their immediate world by not only collecting specimens, but also through careful observation and drawing. This workshop explores the practice of drawing as observation and “deep engagement” with our environment, nurturing valuable connection with and knowledge of the wild in the city. We also consider drawing as research method. Offered in partnership with the Stanley Park Ecology Society.
