Art of Nature

Join us for this free hands-on workshop to learn the basic skills of nature journaling. Participants will make their own field journal, use their senses to explore our environment, practice basic sketching techniques, and create a unique nature poem. No art skills needed! Materials, supplies, resources, and door prizes will be provided.

Nature journaling is a fantastic way to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life - while providing an opportunity to practice patience, observational skills, and creative expression. It can be an opportunity to get out and experience the great outdoors. Keeping a nature journal is a great way to become acquainted - or get reacquainted - with our natural world. 

Nature journaling can help 

  • Improve your mood
  • Gain mental clarity
  • Unplug from technology
  • Boost memory
  • Reduce stress levels
  • Practice presence
  • Improve critical thinking and problem solving
  • Deepen you appreciation for nature
