Meet us at the Alan E. Rich Park, 10 Main Street, Athol, for this fun workshop!

Enjoy a morning outside together learning about nature journaling and sit spots. We'll make a simple sketchbook and do a sit spot practice. Materials will be provided.

This program is for everyone ages 6 and up (including grown-ups)! Kids ages 6 - 11 must be accompanied by an adult.

Participants should bring a mat to sit on if they would like, wear clothes appropriate for the weather so they are comfortable outside, and bring an open mind ready to try something new!

Deborah Bazer has enjoyed teaching art classes for children and adults for over 25 years, in her home studio, at Guild Studio School, Amherst Community Arts Center, Artspace, and the Kids Art Nature summer camp. She holds a B.F.A. in ceramics from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst and an M.Ed from Antioch New England University in early childhood and elementary education. When she is not making art or telling stories with kids, she can be found in the woods or by the ocean, collecting materials to bring back to the studio. In her studio, she builds sculpture, carves raised relief tiles out of clay, and draws and paints.
