Nature Journaling Weekend
May 31, 2014 @ 9:00 am - June 1, 2014 @ 3:00 pm$140 – $160
[I]mmerse yourself in art and nature in a weekend journaling workshop at Pepperwood Ranch in Sonoma. Keeping a nature journal that encourages discovery and curiosity is the most effective way to train yourself to be a naturalist. Explore and describe the wildlife, wildflowers, and landscapes on the pages of your journal and discover secrets and treasures that have been hiding in plain sight. Learn tricks that help you quickly draw what you see so that the journal becomes a tool to help you observe more deeply. Explore observation and curiosity enhancing exercises while refining your drawing skills. Combine visual and written notes to create a collage of thumbnail memories and spontaneous poetry. This workshop will give you a rich tool box of nature study techniques for you to journal your way into summer.
Participants are invited to stay at the Bechtel House or under the stars. A catered dinner Saturday night and continental breakfast Sunday are included.
