River Garden Studio
An Online Workshop
by Roxanne Evans Stout
Whether you already love it or you want to try observing, writing, drawing, painting, and photographing outside,
Nature Journaling online offers new ideas and techniques.
You'll collage in conjunction with nature and wildlife and create gorgeous projects that include found objects.
The course enriches creativity and vision and fosters greater observation of the natural world, helping you be more at ease with writing what you see and feel, freeing you to be more perceptive and reflective.
I've constructed the course to be for all levels, so first-timers and experienced artists alike can reap the benefits of the beautiful content and inspiring lessons.
Each week's projects include experimenting with painting, drawing, writing, collaging, mixed media, and often photography.
Here is a small introduction video of the Nature Journaling online workshop from when I first designed it.
It began in the month of almost summer month of June but could easily work in any season!
