Program Description

Life is diverse, exciting, and incredibly beautiful. During this program, your class will have the opportunity to touch and observe museum specimens while practicing sketching and drawing skills. We will pull out specimens and stories focused on BC Biodiversity, including familiar neighbours from the lower mainland.

There is no need to bring drawing materials, but if your class has a current sketching practice, please encourage them to bring sketching pads, pencils, and other materials that they wish to work with. If you bring in paper or pads, ensure that students have sufficient room to make many sketches on blank paper. Let us know your class’ comfort level with sketching – all levels are welcome!
