Instructor: Carol Welsh

Skill Level: All skill levels

Learn how to keep your own nature journal and start a life-long creative habit as you explore native plants in the landscape. Nature Journaling opens a world of beauty and discovery to you as you increase your powers of observation as a naturalist, and improve your writing and artistic skills. There will be plenty to study at Homefields where many native plants transform the landscape.

You will learn to use simple innovative thinking practices such as Four Color Analysis and Investigative Frames to deepen your work and develop new techniques in your journaling style. Books such as field guides to native plants, botany manuals, watercolor for journaling, and “seeing” in nature will be tools to explore. Wherever you are on your journaling journey, a beginner wanting to know how to take the first step, or a seasoned traveler, don’t miss this opportunity to gain new insights and meet up with fellow journalers! Participants in each session will be provided with 10 unique native plants to observe, study, draw, paint, and learn.

All materials are included in the tuition.
