Coping with COVID-19 Through Art and Nature: From Cornwall to California

John Muir Laws and Artist-Explorer Tony Foster discuss Foster’s ‘Lockdown Diary’, an artwork Journey created during COVID-19 lockdowns this Spring. Confined to home except for one walk each day, Tony constructed this daily diary of painted and written observations using the notes and drawings made during his regular outings. The resulting artwork beautifully illustrates Tony Foster’s pandemic stay-at-home experience in his own backyard of Tywardreath, Cornwall, England. This session is moderated by The Foster’s Artistic Director, Kristin Poole.

This event was part of the 2020 Wild Wonder Nature Journaling Conference, an annual event that gathers people who are passionate about nature, art, science, curiosity, and wonder to share ideas, learn from each other, support each other, inspire each other, and have fun together in nature’s beauty.
