Practicing Your Science Illustration Skills
A hands-on workshop for all levels (you DO NOT need to be "good at drawing") on developing observation and visual notetaking skills, and creating informative illustrations to help communicate scientific concepts. We will look at examples of effective illustrations, practice sketching as a way of recording detailed information, and go over the basics of how to put together a diagram to visually explain a complex idea.
- Ruler, Protactor, Paper, pencil, pen, & eraser
- An object that you found outside and are curious about. Some good ideas: a pinecone, a seedpod, a plant clipping, a flower, an animal bone, an insect (alive or dead), a rock, a potted plant...whatever you can find.
- Optional: a phone camera, PowerPoint
