Connections in Art and Science: Exploring Nature Through Art

The Conversation

Talking about teaching drawing to help people slow down and notice so much more, connecting with their subject matter, and providing moments of mindfulness and presence. Our guest loves to see people have moments of insight about what they’re looking at and see the joy that comes from honing their drawing skills.  Her work with the Art & Science in One through the Cambridge Public Schools, trains adult volunteers to work with 4th and 5th graders on nature journaling as a way of honing the students’ observational skills, their connection to nature, and their ability to draw and write about what they observe.
