Nature & Nurture
In this class we will spend six weeks immersed in the nature that surrounded and inspired the lives of Jane Austen, Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Bronte, and Beatrix Potter. We will discover how deeply nature influenced them as persons and as writers. We will use these discoveries to guide our own nature exploration and nature journaling.
Each week you will be emailed links to video instruction about the life of Jane Austen, the Brontes, and Beatrix Potter. You will also receive technique videos to guide you in your drawing and watercolor journaling. Handouts will be sent by pdf each week along with a list of suggested nature journaling prompts and techniques to try. You will have the option to attend a weekly one-hour zoom discussion and Q&A time for sharing what you are creating and asking any questions. Access to a private Facebook group for sharing with others online will also be made available.
This class is designed to take you anywhere from 2-4 hours or more each week, depending on how much time you are able to set aside for nature journaling and nature exploration.
