In this class you will learn the basics for starting and keeping a nature journaling practice. We’ll cover materials to use, page composition/layout, writing, drawing, as well as strategies to approach journaling as a beginner and establish a regular practice/routine. The only materials you need for this class are a blank journal, pen, and pencil. You may want to bring or purchase basic art supplies (colored pencils and watercolors) for adding color. We will also have these items available for use during class, and will provide you with guidance on the right supplies to purchase should you decide nature journaling is for you.
