Education Museum Victoria: Drawing on Nature
This education kit describes a range of art activities inspired by objects found in nature.
The kit seeks to encourage and inspire people of all ages to engage with natural science and their local environment through art activities. Participants will be able to closely investigate specimens they gather themselves, and to explore a range of drawing techniques, including some used by scientists and scientific illustrators in museums. It is suitable for both adults and children.
