Bird Journals: Colorations and Markings 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’ll discover fun and creative ways to suggest different markings and coloration on your journal birds.

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
