Celebrate the start of spring with a special field journaling workshop; creating a spring equinox memory.
One of challenges of starting a field journal page is deciding where to start. We will make that easier by focusing on signs of spring, and making quick field notes using words and sketches. Then we’ll combine a classic field journal practice with contemporary ways to create a memorable page about the morning. The group will spend some time observing what the morning has to offer at Cool Spring. Then we’ll organize our notes into a single page of classic field journal notes that celebrate the vernal equinox.
This event will be led by Carolyn Duckworth, a professional writer for the National Park Service and a trained artist. Carolyn has spent decades studying and perfecting the practice of keeping naturalist field journals.
The class begins with a brief indoor session, then moves outdoors (weather permitting).
Bring a small (approximately 5 x 7″) sketchbook or notebook, preferably with no lines, or two sheets of unlined paper. You’ll also need a pencil (#2) and a pen of your choice. If you have them, bring colored pencils or a small watercolor set, binoculars, and a hand lens. PVAS also has supplies to use or borrow during the workshop.
All fees are non-refundable. PVAS reserves the right to cancel the workshop for unforeseen circumstances, in which case all fees will be refunded.
