Nature Journaling

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

Nature journaling is a great way to relax and observe the details of nature. Each week we will meet in the studio to explore drawing and painting techniques prior to small trips out into Heritage Park in Mullumbimby. The tutor will demonstrate various ways of using Graphite pencils, felt tipped pens and watercolour, plus tips for remaining comfortable whilst working outdoors. Writing down your observations to accompany the visuals will be encouraged. If the weather makes it impossible to go outside, we will retreat back to the studio to draw from natural specimens. This course is suitable for beginners and experienced students, as each person will be attended to individually. Materials Fee of $5
