Art and story-telling workshop for nature-loving young people with our Youth Guerrilla Garden

Learn ‘Nature journaling and storytelling’ from Trace Bella in a workshop for nature-loving young people

Calling all creative nature-loving young people: Learn from award-winning artist/illustrator Trace Balla. Trace is a ‘story catcher’ who finds inspiration in nature and incorporates local plants and animal species into her detailed, cartoon-style drawings.

Do you like graphic novels or zines and would like to know how to create your own? Are you into drawing, painting, sketching, or cartooning?

Would you like to learn how to look at the world around you and draw what you see and tell stories that bring about positive change?

Have you ever thought about the role of art in telling stories and creating positive cultural change in the world and your local community?

The Youth Guerrilla Garden Crew invite you to join them for a two-day workshop, where Trace will take you on a journey of discovery exploring the art form of nature journaling and the creation of beautiful illustrations and powerful stories.

Don’t worry! No artistic skills needed to participate… All you need is your interest, imagination and enthusiasm.

The two-day workshop is for young people aged 12-18 years and will be held at the Youth Guerrilla Garden behind headspace and Ocean Grove Library, Presidents Ave:
Day 1: 29th September 1-4pm
Day 2: 30th September 10- 4pm
