On a Sketching Trail with Nature
Unraveling Little Mysteries through Nature Journaling
Workshop by Sangeetha Kadur
Nature provides an endless source of inspiration. Every step of the way there is something to notice and wonder about. It is fascinating how each species that we encounter has a captivating story to share. The onus is on us to observe, explore and be curious about our natural world. With a sketchbook and pen in tow, let’s unravel the many nature mysteries.
Sangeetha Kadur’s exploration into the realm of wildlife and nature painting stems from a deep appreciation for both the natural world and the arts. She aspires to create work that emphasizes the importance of our rich biodiversity, and evokes pride and respect in our natural heritage. She has been working in partnership with wildlife organizations on various art-science projects and to help build awareness through education and outreach. She has illustrated for an international publication, ’Hummingbirds’, in collaboration with Gorgas Science Foundation, Texas, and few other wildlife fiction books and children’s books. As the main artist and curator, she has been actively involved with setting up a unique grassroots-centric Nature Information Center, “Holematthi”, at Malai Mahadeshwara Wildlife Sanctuary, Karnataka. Sangeetha maintains a meticulous nature journal with sketches, doodles and little notes of observations during her travels. Combined by a strong urge to share her passion for creating art from the natural world, she co-founded ‘GreenScraps’, nature journaling workshops, with a hope to inspire a new generation of nature artists.
