Open Your World Through Nature Journaling

with Gale McKinley

A nature journal is a place to record our observations of the natural world and to reflect on them. Sketching allows us to slow down enough to see nature in a whole new way, to improve our power of observation, and to stimulate curiosity. By improving our sketching skills with a few simple methods, you will become a more attentive naturalist and improve your ability to capture the living beauty of the seasons.

Gale McKinley is a winner of the South Carolina Arts Commission Jean Laney Harris award for her split oak basket making and an artist by profession. She draws on her time in the natural world to inspire not only her paintings and drawings, but also her longtime hobbies as an herbalist, naturalist, split oak basket maker, and nature journal writer.

Bring your favorite color pencils or water color supplies.

Nature Journaling is an elective course. Prerequisite: Basic Botany. If you are interested in this class, but not the certificate, please contact Sue Watts, [email protected]

Location: Hayden Conference Center at the South Carolina Botanical Garden.
