ENRICH-0456 – Art: Spring Nature Art Journal (ENRICH-0456_ARTJ)

Nature Journaling: Sketching the Spring Season

Is anything more soothing to your soul than wandering around nature? Possibly. How about wandering around nature while journaling? You could reach a whole new level of relaxation. Aptly named, nature journaling is a time-honored pursuit that encourages small sketches and recordings of moments—think of it as your very own poetry of place. The goal? To capture the transforming experience of communing with nature with zero pressure to create a perfect, scientific representation of objects—this is not botanic illustration. Join artist and author Judith Cassel-Mamet as she helps you explore ways to record your playful and pleasing moments in nature. Learn how to fill your pages via the “be, see, then sketch" approach. Discover how to draw complicated shapes, work with contour lines and add color. As soon as you register, you’ll get a suggested list of materials such as an art journal, a small watercolor kit, pens and a few other fun items. Cassel-Mamet says no experience in sketching or painting is required. Enroll, journal and enjoy!
