Children Learn to Sketch the Beauty of Nature

Linda Miller, local artist, shared her knowledge of sketching and nature with a group of children last Saturday, May 14th, at the Williamsburg Botanical Garden in Freedom Park. Students learned how to observe and draw stems, leaves, and flowers from the garden. They selected specimens and then, after drawing them in graphite, used colored pencils or watercolor paint to complete the project. Be sure to mark your calendar for our next children's event, Deer in Your Backyard, with Joe Raich on Saturday, June 11th.
