Nature journaling is the practice of taking your observations of nature and expressing them by drawing and/or writing in your own individual style. This requires that you slow down and clear your mind as well as increase your attention to detail and appreciation of beauty.
The journal you create will be unique and will allow you to recall observations which would otherwise be forgotten. It doesn’t matter whether or not your expression of your observations are “good”, there’s just something about the act of writing it down, or making a sketch, that will help you to remember the scene forever.
Our journaling guide is Tricia Cassady local artist, educator and naturalist who has done many similar programs for Soule Homestead Education Center in Middleboro among others.
To bring: a sketchbook, drawing pencils, and colored pencils. If you wish you may want to bring your own watercolor paints, brush and some felt tipped pens (water soluble and water resistant).
Also recommended are a campstool or blanket, sunscreen, bug spray, and hat. Please note that as getting outside is essential, this workshop is weather dependent and will be rescheduled if conditions are too severe. The program is limited to ten adults, and pre-registration is required.
We will be observing all social distancing regulations and managing group size for the safety of all our guests attending this program. Partial funding for this program was provided courtesy of the Marion Cultural Council.
