Other Upcoming Classes:


Artist, Explorer, Scientist
Did you know that science and art go hand in hand?

Join Doodles Academy as we explore where the worlds of art and science intertwine. Step into the realm of drawing and discover how scientists utilize this powerful tool in their studies. Start with field sketches to learn the art of observational drawing and hone your skills while embracing a scientist’s eye for detail. Then, select an animal figurine of your choice, and draw it as if you were doing field research. Study its environment and create an immersive background that shows your animal’s habitat and habits. But the adventure doesn’t stop there — you’ll take your artwork to new heights by transforming it into a vibrant watercolor painting. Take part in this exciting expedition to explore the natural world and uncover the remarkable connection between visual art and scientific inquiry.

When: Starting Spring 2024 and continuing for 6 weeks

Where: Schools TBD, run through the Rec and Ed afterschool program
