Celebrate the unique Sonoran Desert through a series of sketching and journaling exercises as you learn how to capture intimate experiences in nature using pen, watercolor pencils, collage and writing. Draw and paint, record questions and observations, label particular species, incorporate writing as you create multiple pages of colorful encounters with wildflowers, cacti, animals, birds and the diverse desert landscape. Nature journaling can be a playful, creative and inspiring way to develop observational abilities and record expressive and meaningful outdoor experiences. You have the chance to capture the feeling of a particular moment: conjuring up smells, sounds of birds, the feel of the wind and warmth of sunlight on one’s skin, a visceral memory in nature that can be enjoyed for years to come.The focus in this nature journaling workshop is to relax, take a closer look, notice, wonder, and enjoy the moment while having creative fun in the desert.
