Nature Journaling Workshop for Ages 9-14

June 28, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

Wednesday-Friday, June 28-30, 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

Create a nature-journaling keepsake! During this three-day workshop, students will explore the Gardens and surrounding woodlands, learning how to make journal observations that combine words and imagery. Once back in the classroom, learn lettering techniques using ink and how to add color, detail, lines, and texture using watercolors and colored pencils. We’ll discuss journal page design and layout, and everyone will get to take a journal of completed works home, ready to house more of their nature observations in the future. All materials provided. Parents/Guardians are welcome to take this class alongside their young artist.
