“Sciences and Art through Close Observation: We are Artist-Naturalists!” – Handout here.
Making the best use of the resources we have in our immediate environment and creating a journey for the students in which they become enthusiastic artist-scientists, connecting with nature by observation of its infinite diversity. A new look at the students’ environment – the mundane becomes extraordinary.
