Nature Journaling at Rockwood Nature Center

Nature Journaling gives us opportunities to deepen our relationship with the earth through writing and art. It is a means to record thoughts, feelings, and observations of the natural world around us. Join our staff art instructor and master naturalist for an introduction to this exercise in becoming more in tune with your own connection to our environment. This four week series of courses will meet at the Rockwood Nature Center. Please bring a sketch pad or blank journal to use in class. Participants must register two weeks in advance. The minimum age for this course is 18. $30/person for this series of 4 courses.

Fridays, July 10, 17, 24 and 31 6pm – 8pm

New Nature Journal

20 Mar


I am transitioning an art book from the 1930’s into my own nature journal.  My first entry had to be about all the gorgeous cherry blossoms popping up.

Check on my “welcome” page to find a listing of upcoming Nature Journaling classes at Rockwood Nature Center.

I have been super busy this summer with lots of art classes and one vacation.  I had one private student, taught two Nature Art camps at the nature center, and went to Nags Head for the week.  I will need a break from this summer, and I hope to get it real soon.  I have been working in journals a ton lately and have started a new dream journal.  I won’t be able to share that one for quite some time, though, since I am working on all the pages at once.

I have added 5 new sections to my student art page. It is work the kids did in my Nature Art camp. I still need to get my private students’ work on there.  It’ll be up soon.  Enjoy it!

Spent Father’s Day at the gardens and took a little time to paint. Had such a fun time making this!

This last week has been filled with a lot of class planning activity. I have a new student, Ladies’ Painting Night, and Nature Art summer camp in the works.

…………Well, I’m having difficulty focusing on saying  much more………..I have been reading lots of ADD books lately…….pretty sure I have it……..I’m glazing over while I type……
