About This Class

In this class, we’ll take our sketchbook out into nature and sketch the summer. I will share lots of different ideas for drawing in your sketchbook now that nature is in full bloom, and how you can explore sketching outside in summer. This class is one of four classes that guide you through the seasons and give you inspiration and ideas for sketching nature throughout the year.

We will go for a hike together and take a look at different nature journaling techniques, and I’ll share several step-by-step demonstrations of what you can paint in your sketchbook in summer.

We will explore:

- sketching summer flowers

- tree shapes and tree portraits-

- sketching insects

- small landscapes

- water birds

- and watercolor maps.

This class is perfect for anyone who wants to get started or continue with nature journaling, and anyone who wants to keep creative through the seasons. The different techniques shown in this class will help you to find new ways to explore nature with pencil and paint and you can use them for any creative project. Building up a sketchbook with nature observations is also a very cool tool for learning more about the natural world around us.

Your skill level doesn’t matter as long as you have curiosity and an interest in nature, so this class is great for sketchbook beginners!

I hope you’ll be inspired to explore summer in your sketchbook by the end of this class.
