Bird Journals for Beginners and Continuing Journalers – Bird Journaling Made Simple!

For the timid but hopeful, the beginner, those who wish they could! Jude will give you the skills and the encouragement to enjoy filling your journal with colorful drawings, observations, and musings. Great for home and in the field. All you need are a few tips, a journal, a pen, a brush, and a little watercolor set! Relax, enjoy, and explore your style in this absolutely wonderful way to record the birds you see and love. No art experience is needed! Jude has taught beginners and beyond how to find enjoyment with nature journaling, for a long time! This is about finding joy, not about artistic perfection! You will be encouraged, amazed and excited, as you learn the skills that will begin your adventures. Each class is self-contained, and different than the others, although we do continue the basic practice of connecting, observe, and interpret. Register for each class separately.

Bird Journaling Made Simple!

Some drawing, a little watercolor, and writing can create a surprisingly wonderful bird journal page! Learn some simple and effective ways to represent the birds you see and love. You’ll gain skills to see differently, interpret what you see in your own style, and how to practice anywhere, at home or in the field.

No art experience is needed, just enthusiasm and curiosity.

Trail Accessibility:We hope to hold this class inside at Bird Alliance of Oregon but with the ever-changing nature of COVID we may need to hold the class outside. If the class is held outside, it will be in the Bird Alliance of Oregon nursery area which is across the street from the Nature Store and main building. It will require a walk of about 400 meters up a moderate hill. It is a dirt trail and the ground below the tables and chairs is not even.

All COVID-19 safety protocols dictated by the Oregon Health Authority will be followed on our outdoor programs. Masks are mandatory.

$55 – $75
