In this class we will spend four weeks exploring the world of James Herriot, the landscape of the Yorkshire Dales, the wildflowers that grow in that area, the animals James took care of, and the kinds of farms he visited and loved. We will use these discoveries to inform our own nature exploration and nature journaling.
Each week also includes teatime: teatime with Mrs. Hall, teatime with Tricky Woo, teatime at the farm, and teatime with Helen. We’ll explore traditional recipes and discuss various aspects of life in the Yorkshire Dales.
You will receive four weeks of video instruction as well as technique videos to guide you in your drawing and watercolor journaling. Handouts will be sent by pdf 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.
Art materials are not included and must be purchased separately. You can find the recommended supply list here.
Videos and handouts will be sent out on the following Friday mornings: June 4, 11, 18, and 25.

Age: This class is created for adults and high schoolers but may also be enjoyed by younger students.
Each class purchase is licensed for use with your immediate, physical household. You will have access to the videos and handouts for two years.
