In Draw Deeper Into Nature I guide you step by step to taking your drawing and painting skills to the next level. Through daily practice, video technique tutorials, exercises, and you will gain confidence in your technique and ability to express your experiences in nature on your journal page the way you find aesthetically satisfying.
This course will motivate you to deepen your nature art journaling practice resulting in deeper connections to the wonder filled web of nature right outside your door. Through the century old practice of nature-study, we will deepen our understanding of the aspects of nature that inspire us most.
I will help you hone the skills and knowledge you have, refine your painting and drawing technique, and build confidence in your abilities, while inspiring you to explore new realms of both the natural and the art worlds!
Together, in the supportive course community, we will refresh, relax, practice, and assimilate how a creative practice and regular time spent with nature enhances the joys of life.
