INTRODUCTION TO
Nature Journaling

You don’t need to be an artist to create or tend to a nature journal. However, you must be a lover of flowers and plants and excited to experience the beauty of the natural world! In this four session class, Stephey Baker, local creative and avid urban gardener for bumble bees, guides you step-by-step to creating a nature journal unique to you. Discover how to identify basic leaf shapes, flower structures, and creative tips that are easy to implement—all while honing your observational skills in a relaxed and inspired environment. Whether you live in the city, the country, or the suburbs, there’s always opportunities to connect to the natural world around you—its beauty, heritage, and significance to the web of life. When you make time to be still and take notice of the natural world, you simultaneously deepen your connection to the natural world within you. Come create something meaningful just for yourself or share nature’s beauty with someone special. All materials provided.
