Earlier in the week I received an email from the The Wilderness Society asking me to pass on an invitation to a nature journaling workshop to be held next month. For those of you interested in art and nature, this may be of interest:
The Wilderness Society and renowned artist Robert Johnson will host a three-day workshop at the Wildacres Retreat Center in Little Switzerland, North Carolina, May 12-15. Limited to just 18 people on a first-come, first-serve basis, the "nature journaling workshop" is designed to give artists of all abilities (or even lack-there-of) the opportunity to see some of the state's most beautiful places through new eyes. The focus on observation, drawing, and painting techniques will take place on field trips to ecologically-rich areas in Western North Carolina.
The workshop will take place at the Wildacres Retreat Center in Little Switzerland, and meals and art materials are included. Cost is $490 per person based on double occupancy, and $600 per person based on single occupancy. No previous artistic experience is necessary or expected.
To enroll, readers can contact Jill Gottesman at The Wilderness Society's North Carolina office at (828) 587-9453, or email.
