Second Saturdays of the Month
9am - 11pm
free, no rsvp
Nature Journaling isn’t about making pretty art. It’s about sitting down with nature, looking closely, and deepening your curiosity about the world around us. You don’t have to be a naturalist or an artist, but you might become both.
Each Nature Journal Club meetup will include group exercises and lessons led by a GPNC Naturalist, followed by on-your-own free journaling time.
Bring your own sketchbook and drawing instruments.
This program series is intended for adults and older youth (14+), but anyone with a sincere interest in nature journaling is welcome to attend.
> Anything you like to work with! (Seriously.)
If a lesson involves special materials, GPNC will provide it.
A Nature Journal
Your nature journal can be a sketchbook, graph paper pad, watercolor journal, a fancy traveler's notebook... anything.
A Writing Instrument
Choose your weapon(s), and don't feel like you have to stick to one thing or buy fancy supplies.
My favorites are a ballpoint pen, mechanical pencil with blue lead, and waterbrushes (with a travel palette of 8 watercolors).
Make sure your supplies are compatible. Some pens smear when exposed to markers, water, etc.
