Rob Soto, science illustrator and paleoartist, is teaching this hands-on drawing workshop exploring non-human perspectives of the natural environment. Participants will explore map making in the context of nature journaling with “new eyes” with which to see outdoor spaces and discover hidden patterns.

The word “cartography” refers specifically to the act of drawing a map, a skill lost in the digital age. Using a local plant or animal, participants will draw a top-down, cross section, and block map of a small ecological feature, from that organism’s point of view, mapping the intrinsic value of the ecosystem, and shedding human-assigned values in nature.

All levels and ages are welcome.
