Nature Journaling with Watercolor 01:
EXPLORING COLOR IN THE NATURAL WORLD
Get ready to discover a world of color! Join Stephey Baker, a local creative and avid urban gardener for bumble bees, as she guides you step-by-step to creating a color palette unique to you. In this four-day class, learn dependable watercolor and simple drawing techniques for nature journaling, as well as a few creative shortcuts to get you inspired, confident, and most of all painting! Learn why this practice is key to increasing your observational skills and ability to actually see and paint color. Find out how color is used by nature to survive, warn, enchant us (and a variety of pollinators), as well as how it influences our mood, triggers memories, and even inspires dreams. This class also covers how to select and use watercolor paints, papers, and brushes. Practice is key to slowing down, observing, and recording those observations in your nature journal. Using quality watercolor paints helps you easily understand how to create vibrant colors that stand out from the page. Prerequisite: Basic understanding of what a Nature Journal is and how to tend to one is expected. (Scroll down for more information)
