Log Off... Shut Down... Get Outside!

Sketching Outdoors

Do you have a favorite spot in your yard? Or a favorite MetroPark you like to visit? Get outside, pick your spot, and sketch it! Be sure to focus on the details (i.e. colors, buds, leaves, insects). Continue to visit this spot whenever you can and make a new sketch with each visit! How has it changed? (i.e. changed color, bloomed, plants grew higher, more wildlife nearby) You can even start a nature journal to record all your cool findings!

Sometimes it seems like the seasons change in the blink of an eye- but when you start looking closely, you can discover all the secret little details of nature transforming our winter world into a world of spring! Share your sketches in the comment section for us to see, then come back and comment again with updated drawings so we can all see the amazing progress nature’s making as it springs forward!
