Climate Resilience with Claire Baldwin

From destructive coastal floods to heat waves, experiencing the effects of climate change can feel overwhelming. But by creating art, we can open our eyes to the infinite beauty the natural world contains and cultivate a deep well of resilience.

Join natural science illustrator Claire Loon Baldwin for a nature walk and sketchbook workshop. Everyone from total beginners to experienced artists are welcome, and all art supplies will be provided for use on that day. We’ll embark on a nature walk at the Skolfield Shores Preserve and learn tools for observing the natural world with curiosity, rather than anxiety, and translating it onto the page with watercolor pencils.

Attendees will learn techniques for drawing quickly, expressively, and creatively, all while building community and cultivating curiosity and hope for the natural world. This workshop is appropriate for ages 12 and up, and we ask that you have an adult participant to accompany anyone under the age of 16. Please dress for the weather and bring sunscreen, bug spray, water, and snacks!

In the event of a thunderstorm or other severe weather, we will host this event at Centennial Hall. In the event of rain, the program will be split, half on the trail and half inside. Space for this program is limited and registration is required.
