Nature Journaling 2: Science and Art LIVE!

Date: July 15
Time: 10 am – 2 pm (break for lunch)
Registration Deadline: July 12
Location: Thoreson Farm

Nature Journaling is collecting and organizing your observations, questions, connections, and explanations on the pages of a notebook using words, pictures, and numbers. You do not need to be an artist or a naturalist to begin! We’ll explore how to keep a nature journal and how to record observations in one. Using a dissecting microscope and Foldscopes, we’ll get up close and personal with flowers, seeds and bugs. Participants will create an accordion style journal to record their findings. Nature Journaling is creative and playful, easy to begin and learn, and will grow and mature over a lifetime

Judy Kelly is an artist and a naturalist. She has been drawing since high school. As a former biology teacher, she encouraged her students to personally engage with their natural surroundings. Judykellystudio.com
