Nature Sketch in Victoria

Nature Sketch is designed to inspire appreciation of the natural world using a pencil and sketchbook. Every participant will have the opportunity to connect with nature in a variety of unique ecosystems through art, and learn about local flora and fauna and their habitats, including species at risk and the rewilding of urban habitats. With the guidance of a local artist and a naturalist, Nature Sketch encourages participants to explore natural environments through art and eco-literacy.

Nature Sketch Junior

This course will cover fundamental skills such as line drawing, understanding shapes, and shading techniques through the lens of nature.


This course will cover a curriculum of drawing instruction using a pencil and sketchbook, combined with nature-study.

Adult Watercolour

This course will introduce students to watercolour materials and techniques and some nature study.

Discovering the creative force within is one of the most magical and empowering moments that can be seen in a Nature Sketch session. Seeing a child have that ‘A-Ha’ moment – the moment they understand their own creative potential to connect with nature using a pencil and know that this creativity will serve them for the rest of their lives, is truly one of the best sights you will ever see.
