Nancy has great talent, and she shares this with students. Her handouts are helpful and easy to follow. She’s always encouraging and available to give assistance. She is very fun to be around. This was a great course, and it can carry over into our daily lives. – recent workshop participant

Join Nancy Seiler for three different sessions of in-depth nature journaling in canyon country. Day one will be spent event mapping (slow saunter and in-place drawing and journaling). Day two will focus on drawing plants in a step-by-step process so as not to overwhelm. On day three, learn how to capture a landscape in your journal with small sketches that can be completed in a short amount of time. We’ll work in pencil, waterproof pen and watercolor. *Please bring a journal with thicker paper that accepts watercolor (I suggest Moleskine Watercolor Notebook, size 5” x 8.25” or similar).  Also remember to bring lunch, snacks, water, sunscreen, something to sit on like a Crazy Creek chair or stool, hat, sunglasses, etc. Dress for the weather!
