Nature Sketch by the Robert Bateman Foundation
Observe nature in your schoolyard, make art and have fun!
*In light of the rapidly evolving coronavirus outbreak, please practice social distancing and follow government guidelines for gatherings and activities. The health and safety of educators and students are our top priorities.*
Fostering a love of nature, wherever it is found, is a significant goal of WWF’s Living Planet @ School program. Getting outdoors and making art about nature cultivates a direct way of knowing our ecosystems.
Students will learn about wildlife and habitat of local flora and fauna as they observe. These skills lay the foundation for a lifelong engagement with nature as an artist, ecologist, citizen scientist, or outdoor enthusiast.
Through the Nature Sketch program, you can provide your students with a special way of combining environmental awareness with art and developing your students’ powers of observation when noticing nature.
Help protect threatened species and their habitats.
