Across cultures and throughout history, the natural world has been a source of endless artistic inspiration. Visit the ROM’s Asian, Egyptian, European, Wildlife Photographer of the Year and First Peoples galleries to discover how nature features in the art of these very different cultures. The Natural History galleries will serve as your inspiration as you use a variety of techniques, including sketching, shading, blind contour, and eraser drawing to create your own wild and wonderful works of art.
Drawing from Nature presents a unique opportunity for young teens to refine their artistic skills and develop their portfolio.
Students will also take part in the third ever Drawing from Nature Artshow taking place on Saturday March 3rd in collaboration with the ROM Wildlife Photographer of the Year Contest. Students will have their art on display for public viewing in the Schad Gallery of Biodiversity and the Earth Rangers Studio for the day.
