Alan Li

Artist and conservationist Alan Li uses pencil, ink and paint to document the wonders of the natural world. Alan’s mission is to build connections to nature through arts-based education. Since 2015, he has been partnering with non-profit environmental organizations to lead nature focused art programs and workshops. He also supports conservation efforts through the sale of his artwork and as an active volunteer. Alan believes that drawing can open people’s eyes to the planet’s diversity, and show them that it matters.

This is a two-part workshop which will take place over two Saturdays:

  • Saturday, April 27 and May 4, 1-4PM.

This event will begin at the High Park Nature Centre’s Forest School building located at 375 Colborne Lodge Drive.

A number of changes were made to the travel network within High Park as part of the High Park Movement Strategy that might influence your decision to drive to High Park. In case you’re driving we strongly recommend you to park your car at the public parking lot near Grenadier Cafe.

We continue to recommend using the TTC or biking as the best way to get to High Park and the Nature Centre. The Nature Centre is situated just a 5-minute walk from the High Park Subway Station. In case you were biking, there are bike racks available in front of the Nature Centre.

Please note, High Park is closed to cars on the weekends. If your event is on a weekend, you will need to park outside the park and walk in, or take transit.
