JOIN artist LisaEllen Evola for an adventure into sketching, painting and journaling the natural world around you.

In this class you will create a hardcover journal to accompany you on hikes, classes, lectures, and in your own gardens, to visually document discoveries along the way. 

You will:

  • Learn to create your own Journal and leave the session with all you need to continue this beautiful journey of creativity (*graphic pen, charcoal pencil, trim-point eraser, & my favorite gel pen)
  • Break down plants & flowers into simple shapes for easy sketching 
  • Use quick watercolor washes for added beauty to your spreads
  • Beautifully illustrate your natural recipes
  • Learn Plein Air techniques for on-the-go documenting
  • Learn to create your own “ESSENTIALS” tool kit, so you will always have what you need at hand
