Introduction to Nature Journaling: Origins of Citizen Science
Use your observation and recording skills in this workshop to become familiar with the art of nature journaling.
Join artist Nellie Sue Potter and Emily Beaton (HPNC Community Programs Coordinator) as they dive into the world of nature journaling. This workshop is for those entirely new to nature journaling, as well as those who want to extend their knowledge and technique. This program will provide you with instruction on observing, recording and sketching and provide tips for you to continue your nature journaling practice beyond the workshop! This workshop will also look at the the history and cultural influence nature journaling has had in both the scientific and art communities.
The workshop will include both indoor and outdoor components.
Please ensure that you are dressed for the weather and that you wear a warm, comfortable footwear. We are committed to offering accessible programming and plan to hike on wide trails with gentle inclines. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us prior to the workshop.
