Nature Sketching in Paradise Meadows

Draw and discover the unique and diverse array of alpine flora and fauna found in Strathcona Park. Elke Ribeyre, artist, conservationist and flower-hugger, will casually guide you on an artistic foray through Paradise Meadows, during which you will connect more deeply with nature’s detailed beauty by recording your observations through the age-old practice of nature sketching. Find your inner childhood artist, the one who does not self-criticize, and simply enjoy expressing your appreciation of Nature creatively. In the process, become more aware of how we too are fauna in this fragile yet wonderful alpine ecosystem. Nature’s children of all ages and experience welcome! Please bring a sketchbook if you have one. 

Sturdy footwear is essential – be prepared for sudden changes in weather in the mountains. Always carry water. No dogs, please.
