Spring Nature Journaling ~ Birds!
with Andrea Lani
Member: $30, Non Member: $40
Location: Fields Pond, Holden. 10 a.m - 2 p.m.
In this workshop we'll use our nature journals to learn more about the birds that populate our fields and forests. Maine Master Naturalist, Andrea Lani, will lead participants through a variety of nature journaling techniques—from field sketching to detailed drawings, note-taking to poetry-writing—that will help you become acquainted with our feathered friends. The workshop is suitable for both beginners and experienced journal keepers. We'll start with an introduction to nature journaling during which participants will learn a variety of drawing techniques designed to help even the most reluctant artist overcome their fears. From there we'll explore a different aspect of the natural world using a variety of journaling techniques specific to bird-watching.
NOTE: We will spend time both outdoors and inside, so please dress accordingly. Bring a blank book, notebook, or journal and your preferred writing and drawing tools (a # 2 pencil is sufficient, but a drawing pen and colored pencils are welcome, if desired), and something to sit on outdoors (lightweight camp chair, sit mat, extra jacket, etc.). If you have binoculars and/or a field guide to birds, please bring them as well.
