Nature Journaling (Zoom Livestream) (Limit 20) (Closed)

Course Description:

*Thank you for your enthusiastic response. Melinda offers a variety of Nature Journaling engagements you can check out. More information can be found on Melinda's website, – look for events and classes.*

At its heart, nature journaling is about learning to truly see, hear and experience nature in a way that deepens our awareness and increases our knowledge of the natural world. Through sketches and notations, we communicate our experience and ask questions that stimulate our curiosity and wonder. We’ll explore the basics of keeping a nature journal, practice techniques to improve our awareness and naturalist skills, and learn how to move beyond mental roadblocks to cultivate our nature journaling practice. Sketching is a skill that improves with practice and guidance. Anyone can learn to sketch – no prior experience necessary.
