Nature Journaling Workshop (recorded from the Live June 5 event)
The live class may have passed, but the nature drawing and painting fun continues at your own time and pace in this recorded class!
This workshop is for you if you want to:
...Discover tips and tricks for drawing and painting nature by simply breaking down bits of nature into shapes.
...Draw and paint nature live in a supportive class to help hone and expand your nature journaling skills...
...Ask questions about nature inspired art-making (and share your art if you want)...
Participants gain access to the classroom upon registration for the life of the class. This class is self paced and pre-recorded. (The live workshop was held only on June 5, 2021). It includes pdf downloads of tutorial videos as well as photo references.
Additionally, this class includes bonus nature journaling inspiration and project links to spark your wonder!
During the workshop, We also Celebrate the release of Draw Yourself Back to Nature: Creativity, Connection, & Art-Making with the Natural World - the Book, + the collaboration limited edition set of Wings, Worms, and Wonder watercolor paints by Viviva Colors!
I'm your guide into nature inspired drawing and painting, Kelly Johnson!
If you drop by my world on an average day you might find me gardening, making art, snowboarding, surfing, vegan baking, or helping humans connect with nature, creatively!
I have a BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design, an MA in environmental studies from Goddard College, an AMS 6-9 teaching credential & 20+ years experience teaching art & nature-study to children and adults in a wide variety of settings - from the classroom to the forest.
From huge murals in Mexico to tiny portraits in Virginia to tropical plants in Nicaragua, I've painted about everything and I love how art builds community and connections in every venue!
