Although we can't be together physically, I have found that an amazing connection takes place in small zoom gatherings, and I'm optimistic that these workshops will help you develop skill and community in your watercolor nature journaling practice. Here is a list of I will present material similar to my in-person workshops through the use of an auxiliary camera that will allow me to give live demonstrations of techniques. Downloadable handouts will We will also share our pages throughout which is a great way to learn from each other and create a sense of community.
Kits: I do still require that you use my kit since so much of the workshop depends on the use of its contents. If you don't already have MY kit, you will need to purchase one on the Kits page. Once you purchase the kit, which will arrive within 3 days or so, you'll be given a link to a video of how to do the color exercises. It will be necessary for you to complete the exercises in the video before the start of class. *For those who already have a kit, contact me and I will send you the link to refresh your memory and skills.
Regions of California in the Tilden Botanic Garden
June 27 *and/or 28, 2020
9am – 3pm
Tilden Park, Regional Native Plant Garden, Berkeley, CA
The Regional Parks Botanic Garden is a naturally beautiful and tranquil living museum of California native plants. Located within Tilden Park in the hills above Berkeley, California, this enchanting 10-acre garden is a sanctuary for many of the state’s rare and endangered plants and a place for visitors to wander among trees, shrubs, flowers, and grasses from plant communities throughout the state.
On Saturday you we will explore color mixing of the 8 colors in your compact kit to match the full range of hues you’ll find in the garden. There will be hands-on exercises in capturing close-ups of native plants as well as distance sense-of-place landscapes.
Sunday we will explore page layout before heading out to paint, write and create a day of memories in your nature journal. Kristin will be sharing her techniques through on-site demonstrations.
*You may take either day individually, but Sunday you will benefit from either taking the Saturday class or a prior workshop with Kristin.
