Carolyn Shelton: Observing Nature Through Simple Journaling – Words, Sketches, Painting

September 25, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

NOTE: Limited to 10 people (minimum 2).  To RSVP, please sign up here..  Caravan from town to area near Head of the Rocks.
Bring something to write in or sketch or paint on, as well as the materials you need. It can be as simple as a pen or pencil and a few pieces of paper on a clipboard or an actual journal. Carolyn prefers to use watercolor pencils and brushes, as they are easy to use “in the field.” Your choice! Since we will be walking a short distance and then sitting on the ground, you might want a cushion.
  • sketchbook or something to write, sketch, or paint on
  • pencil, pen, paints, or watercolor pencils and brushes
  • cushion to sit on 
  • 2 liters of water
  • sunscreen, sunglasses, and hat

Carolyn is an ardent observer and lover of the outdoors – flora, fauna, geology, weather. Over the years, she has enjoyed sharing this love through nature journaling with other people, particularly those that don’t consider themselves physically able outdoor enthusiasts. The ability to observe one’s surroundings and the beauty and complexity of the natural world can bring us great joy, solace, and compassion. It can also help us understand better why it is so important to protect Mother Earth, and in particular Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.
