Nature Journaling Seminar

August 20, 2020 - September 3, 2020


Nature Journaling Seminar

Join us for a nature journaling seminar for beginners!

A nature journal is more than a collection of pretty sketches, it is a record of your experiences with the natural world. Learn how to use a nature journal to support your investigation and connection with the world around you, and build space to stop, look and slow down with nature.

The class will meet virtually once a week for three weeks. Outside of class, participants will explore their new nature journaling skills. This class is focused on journaling, so while sketching and drawing can enrich these activities, no artistic abilities are needed. 

Course Objectives

  • Learn what to carry in your Nature Journal kit
  • Use prompts to focus your attention
  • Develop your own nature journal style
  • Investigate the outdoors
  • Create journal entries to share with the class
  • Develop a hobby that promotes lifelong learning

Class will meet via Zoom on Thursday evenings from 7:00-8:00 pm on August 20, August 27, and September 3rd.
