De-stress this summer and get your creative juices flowing with two drop-in classes with Judy Johnson-Williams.
June 22: Nature Journaling
Want to get out in nature? Art blocked? This introductory class is about being attuned to the natural world and how to participate as an artist-scientist. We will sketch the wonderful bounty of plants and wildlife around the museum. Can’t draw? The first hour will feature friendly drawing instruction to get you started and there are many alternative techniques: tracing leaves, rubbings, and counting for noticing and recording what’s around us. Then we will go outside and see what we can find.
June 29: Make a Sketchbook
Better than buying one! You can make your own in the perfect size size (to fit in your backpack, pocket), with the paper you like, hard or soft covers. We will make three different book forms (stitched, sidebound, one sheet) and then take them outside to try them out. No experience necessary. 

About the Instructor
