The Art of Observation: Creating a Nature Sketchbook

In this multisession course, we will explore how we see the world around us—slowing down and connecting with nature through sketching and watercolor. No prior experience is needed; the class is designed for various skill levels. We will consider what it means to learn to look, to truly observe. We will explore our own visual intelligence for ways to better understand nature and the environment. Students will come away from the class with their own nature sketchbook well underway.

Please note: We do not make video or audio recordings of classes or programs available after the fact, because we believe education is interactive, with instructors and students building a community and culture of learning. Some programs may be recorded strictly for instructor-training purposes. Please visit this page to review this and other FAQs about our policies.
