Spring is the perfect time to grab your sketchbook and get outside to look more closely at the new life bursting out around you. Sketch along with Jean Mackay, author and illustrator of The Nature Explorer’s Sketchbook, for a fun exploration of spring things, colors, and patterns. Jean will share activities and tips to get you ready to head outside this spring.
Bring paper and a pencil, colored pencils, crayons, or markers to this session. Jean will share nature objects to sketch or your can bring your own. This session is especially suited to the 8+ old artist, explorer or nature lover in your world (and adults who have wanted to try nature journaling).
Participants will have a chance to win a copy of the The Nature Explorer’s Sketchbook and to share their artwork in the online Nature Explorer’s Gallery - https://jeanmackayart.com/the-nature-explorers-sketchbook/explorers-gallery/
