I live in New York City. Homeschooling the way we do, we follow Charlotte Mason's advice to draw in nature journals. Spending time outdoors and sketching nature is part of our regular routine.
|My nature drawing from last week, |
at the Queens Botanical Garden.
But, I live in the city of cities and this place is essentially defined by its streets scenes.
|My daughter drawing buildings in lower Manhattan.|
|My husband drawing river traffic at Brooklyn Bridge Park.|
I don't know why it's taken me so long to consider sketching the city as part of journaling. My family caught on to that idea much earlier than I did, as is usually the case, and have been busy drawing the city while I look for dandelions.
