Art Instruction, Nature Studies

Natural History Illustration Course found this neat online course that should appeal to many homeschool families, so today we’re going to let them tell you about it:

“Creatively homeschooling parents, eclectic homeschoolers, and Charlotte Mason teachers, you’ll enjoy this free nature illustration course! A few months ago, I shared that I was going to take what I called a “nature journal college course” from the University of Newcastle.

“I really loved it!

“The course covers botanical illustration, but goes so much deeper than just showing you how the teacher draws objects.  Instead, you are encouraged to draw the object as you see it!  Also, you’ll learn about natural history illustrators who are helping scientists (an artist will sometimes notice things that are missed in photographs or not noticed by simply viewing an animal). 

“Guess what?  The free nature illustration course is being repeated!  It begins April 2, 2019.  The free course is called Drawing Nature, Science and Culture: Natural History Illustration 101. It comes to us online, from the University of Newcastle in Australia.”
