Lost Words – the art of nature connecting through words & pictures
Friday 7 June @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm£95
This one-day CPD workshop with Jon Cree will explore our emotional and nature literacy through simple oral and wordsmithing, and sketching.
Through sensory activity and observation we will be looking at narrative of story, prose and poetry. When this is combined with simple sketch and painting techniques in the outdoors a deeper connection is made with the natural world.
The day will use Jackie Morris’s and Robert MacFarlene’s gorgeous book ‘The Lost Words’ to literally journal our way into nature. The day will be participatory and crammed full of tips, ideas and activities that can be used in any natural setting.
The workshop will include:
- Ways of working outside through the seasons to build students observation and journaling abilities
- Integrating a more holistic way of working outside combining literacy, art and science
- Understanding how words and pictures can be used to support learning and nature connection
- A range of outdoor, nature-based activities to start your repertoire to use with learners.
The course is for anyone wanting to enrich Literacy, Art, Nature Connection and Outdoor Learning opportunities through words, pictures and poetry in the outdoor environment.
Suitable for: Primary Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Early Years Practitioners, Outdoor Educators and Forest School Practitioners, Home School Educators.
