Capturing Nature in Words
with Catherine Bollinger, Writer, Editor & Avid Gardener
Date: Saturdays, March 30 and April 6
Time: 1:30 PM - 4:30 PM
Fee: $72 ($65 Members)
This class will encourage participants to notice nature in their own backyards and gardens and record their observations. We will explore a range of journaling options and hybrids that will meet the goals of creative writers attempting to deepen their work with vivid natural world details, to gardeners trying to track when flowers bloom, to hikers who want to remember a mountaintop rhododendron tunnel in full, bee-buzzing bloom. Participants will leave the class with sharpened observation skills, methods they prefer for recording and using those observations, and a level of comfort to continue journaling after the class ends. Journaling is about learning; any science or art that springs from that process is a bonus, and anyone at any skill level can journal.
