Workshop Overview

In this two-day workshop, participants will learn nature journaling methods inspired by artist and author John Muir Laws. There will be an emphasis on experiencing nature rather than making "good drawings", inviting the curious, discovery-hungry, mistake-making child artist within to come out and play on the page. Spending most of each day outside, the group will experiment with novel prompts and formats, play drawing games and work to engage different areas of the brain. This workshop will kick start your nature journaling practice and provide strategies and resources to keep journal keepers going strong through all seasons of the year.
