Creative Nature Journaling
5 week Online Course (recorded from live online lessons)


Regain your curiosity and wonder at the natural world through drawing and painting in this inspiring 5-week course that will teach you how to create and use a creative nature journal.

Keeping a sketchbook (in some form) is vital to artists or those learning to draw. This course will expand on the practice of drawing regularly, ‘putting in your pencil miles’ through observational drawing as well as encouraging you to think outside the box in how a sketchbook or nature journal can be used.

Your Tutor Bethany Y Milam will guide you through making and/or adapting a book to use as a Journal, personalising it to suit your needs, style and goals. Creating foldouts, overlays, pockets, flaps, using toned paper, collage, or painted pages.

There will be step by step demonstrations of drawing activities and various techniques for adding your observations into your journal. We will explore ways of using tonal paper and other backgrounds, mapping a walk or place, creating a calendar, using printmaking, collage, rubbings and found materials. We will also explore ways of combining words and pictures through illustrating a poem, adding written observations and annotations as well as how you might use sketchbook to develop finished paintings. There will be suggested homework tasks giving each week to be done out in nature or from direct observation.

Suitable for all abilities including beginners. Keeping a nature journal or sketchbook of observations is a fun and creative way of learning, collecting and organizing your observations and thoughts, you do not need to be an artist or naturalist to enjoy this course.

What you will gain from the course:
• Get more from your sketchbooks, Journals and study pages through making or adapting a book to suit you and by regular drawing.
