Bird Journals: Continuing Bird Journal Basics with Jude Siegel

Join Jude to learn how to see differently and how to drop unrealistic artistic expectations of yourself. Start or continue your bird journal. No art or birding experience is needed! For joy, not mastery! Keeping a bird journal is fun, easy, portable, and a creative, relaxing way to record your experiences with birds.

In this class, we will practice how to see differently, in order to then draw a bird and get it, as drawing and painting are learned skills. We’ll practice simple watercolor, some writing and other elements that will contribute to a completed page. Come learn this wonderful way to record the birds around us.

We will explore excellent tools for recording your bird experiences, both at home and in the field. Each class focuses on a specific aspect of journaling and reviews the basics. Relaxation is encouraged, and your unique style will be celebrated. Please take as many classes as you wish in the series.

$55 – $75
