This course is about using sketchbooks to gain a deeper understanding of the natural world.
A nature sketchbook can improve one’s observations, aid with memory, and be a way of sharing your experiences with others.
We will start with a look at observation and recording techniques, materials, and useful digital tools. Then we will take a short nature walk and return to the class for a guided drawing session.
