"To develop a complete mind: Study the science of art. Study the art of science. Learn how to see. Realise that everything connects to everything else."
Awaken your curiosity and wonder for the natural world
Join me from 1 June 2020 for 7 days of nature journaling - a free community project.
Drawing while immersed in the natural world is something I have always loved doing. Drawing helps me to stop and notice, to see things I hadn't seen before, to be completely lost in the moment. Somehow over the years since finishing school I stopped doing it. I'd draw from life in my studio but not outside.
I was inspired to learn more about nature journaling after hearing it mentioned on a podcast and after some research I started this Spring (Intrigued? Watch a video of me nature journaling in the garden). Though I have always created artwork from nature I am early on in my nature journaling journey and I'd love to create a community of people also interested in creating a deeper connection with nature, fellow humans and ourselves through this practice.
Notice, wonder, connect
From 1 June, during International Nature Journaling Week I'll be sending out daily emails with suggestions of how to get started based on my experience and research, including sketching tips. We will explore how to notice and be present, awaken curiosity and wonder and find connections with and belonging to the natural world. The suggestions will only take 10 minutes each and I hope we can encourage and support each other through the project through sharing our work via the Instagram hashtag #NoticeWonderConnect.
