Nature Journaling Workshop

Learning the basics of botanical drawing

A demo leaf sketch

Fifteen people took part in this herbarium-sponsored workshop. Instructor Lendon Noe led the group through several exercises, including contour drawing, color theory, and journal enhancement. The two-day workshop took place both in the lab adjoining the herbarium and at the Sewanee Natural Bridge. The emphasis was on learning to see and record your surroundings, using simple drawing and painting materials. As Lendon promised, each participant finished with a remarkably personal record of the experience. We hope to get her back on the mountain soon!
