The Nature Journal Facebook Club:
Join the club for news and posts from other nature journalers. Jack offers a free (donations gladly accepted) 1-1/2 hour demonstration on a journal topic on the 2nd Tuesday and Wednesday of each month, and leads one all-day outing on the 4th Sunday of the month. This is an amazing gift and opportunity for all of us living in the Bay Area.

This is where it all began for me. It's a wonderful rustic campus offering nature related classes of all kinds.

My Favorite Resources

"Thank you, Kristin, for being the kind, non-judgmental teacher you are. We are all so much fuller than we were before the weekend: full of the nuances of color, the geometry of shape ... of the stillness and concentration of trying to distill a moment in time to a drip of color on paper. And full of the pleasure of spending two days in such delightful company; that this adventure would be so fun was such a nice accessory to the class."
