Fly Crafts: Bird Journals: Birds & Their Habitats with Jude Siegel

Join Jude to learn how to see differently and how to drop unrealistic artistic expectations. 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.

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, and register for each separately.

In this class, we emphasize the theme that less is more. We will learn how to make your journal pages interesting with a vitality that sparkles and sings. We will learn to suggest sky, water, foliage, rocks, and more with a few marks and a bit of color. Simplicity is key.

$55 – $75
