Spend one, two or three afternoons exploring Wave Hill’s grounds and gardens and practicing methods for recording your observations, then constructing a nature journal. Harness your powers of observation to closely examine the budding leaves, flowers and insects of spring.

Today’s program: Modeled on tried-and-true nature-journaling practices, learn accessible techniques like blind and sighted contour drawing to record the details of spring growth in your new nature journal, and label them to help you remember your experience.

Spring marks a new cycle of life—trees are leafing out, buds are bursting and migrating birds are returning to their summer homes at Wave Hill. Spend one, two or three afternoons exploring Wave Hill’s grounds and gardens and practicing methods for recording your observations, then constructing a nature journal. Harness your powers of observation to closely examine the budding leaves, flowers and insects of spring.

Today’s program: Celebrate the colors of the season by rendering your observations of Wave Hill’s gardens with colored pencils and pastels in your newly constructed nature journal. Inspired by the expressive use of color in Japanese prints and European Post-Impressionist paintings, we also explore the emotive powers of color and express our responses to nature through hue. This program is geared toward families with children between the ages of six and 10. Space is limited.

Spring marks a new cycle of life—trees are leafing out, buds are bursting, and migrating birds are returning to their summer homes at Wave Hill. Spend one, two or three afternoons exploring Wave Hill’s grounds and gardens and practicing methods for recording your observations, then constructing a nature journal. Harness your powers of observation to closely examine the budding leaves, flowers and insects of spring.

Today’s program: Watercolor paints are a great way to capture the delicacy of new spring growth. Master a simple under-painting technique for achieving a cohesive image, then complete a watercolor painting inspired by Wave Hill’s grounds to create an impressive cover for your nature journal.

This program is geared toward families with children between the ages of six and 10. Space is limited.

Start time: 1:30 pm

End time: 3:00 pm
