About the event

This month's Drawn into Nature is focused around easy mini landscapes. Thursday May 9 at 4pm Pacific

  • Have you ever struggled to sketch the gorgeous landscape, mountains, or water and get overwhelmed will all the detail?
  • Did you feel confused about where to begin?
  • Or got lost in the details (every tree in the forest) that you lost the joy of journaling?

Join me and I'll share the ways I incorporate landscapes in my journal that are manageable, fun and quick, so that there's more time to enjoy nature!  This is not a drawing class- but a low stress and relaxed way to approach nature journaling! Learn easy ways to sketch and write about our places in nature!  Bring your sketchbook and journaling supplies and let's dive in!!

Please come join me each month, the 2nd Thursday. Come to as many sessions as you like- we learn something new each time!

These workshops are Free for Members of Spark Collective, Awaken to Nature and Expand your Spark communities. Try Spark Collective for a free 14-day trial AND get this workshop included!

See you soon!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nature is always speaking to us, but are we tuning in? 

Join me for this introduction on how to deepen your wonder and connection to nature through nature journaling-- creative expression with sketching and writing about your nature experience.

I'll share a simple framework to get you started, and quiet the inner critical mind so that you can sketch with ease, have more time to explore nature with a new awareness and joyful wonder.

The nature journal is a fun and easy way to document your nature encounters so that you have a sensory scrapbook, as well as a powerful tool to 

  • develop and increase emotional literacy
  • develop fluency in nature's language
  • use drawing as a means to focus on seeing more in nature rather than a goal of a pretty painting.
  • improve your drawing and curiosity skills
  •  expand your nature awareness

Sharing what we learn with others expands our learning--so that its much more that one person's observations, but building collective knowledge.

Please come join me each month, the 2nd Thursday. Come to as many sessions as you like- we learn something new each time!

Bring: Your journal or sketchbook and a pencil, pen and something to color with (colored pencils work great).
