Develop your nature journaling skills, whether you are just getting started, want to add visual notes to a written journal, or simply enjoy drawing what you see. Through guided exercises, we’ll practice perceptual and drawing skills to quickly establish a framework for a diagram, drawing, or description in your journal, then experiment with portable drawing and painting media. We’ll also look at strategies for organizing your journal for outdoor excursions.


All skill levels are welcome! Come dressed to venture outside. Bring your favorite journal and tools or refer to this materials list for suggestions.


This is a non-credit course.
