Why Observational Drawing Is a Fun and Educational Activity for Children of All Ages

By encouraging your child to draw from what they see, instead of drawing from what they know, you are helping them to explore the details of the world around them.  You are engaging their problem solving and creative thinking skills as well as helping them to develop fine-motor skills

Science on the Rocks

Have you ever ventured to Belle Isle on the James River in Richmond and taken the time to contemplate a pretty cool phenomenon among the rocks? There are over 400 rock pools along the fall zone of the James which were formed over thousands of years by the grinding away of pebbles against the exposed granite. These water filled pockets are unique ecosystems that have an important story to tell. By studying these rock pools, we can learn more about the condition of our overall environment.
