Appropriate for all skill levels.  Journaling helps us to slow down to really see and appreciate the world around us.   This course is designed for those who love being in nature and wish to record their experiences in the form of an illustrated journal.   The basic elements of watercolor, color pencil, pen and ink wash will be covered as well as the fundamentals of layout and design to create a pleasing page.   Drawing theory from Frederick Franck’s “Zen of Seeing,” and Betty Edward’s “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain,” will be presented to encourage us to turn down the internal critic, free up creativity, and enjoy both the process and the product as we journal our experiences.  

Materials list provided upon registration.
