HI all! I've added Pam's workshop to our page on Classes and Workshops in the tab at the top of the page, but I wanted to make sure you didn't miss it! (And contributors, if you've got a new workshop, do let me know so I can add it!)
Illustrated Nature Journaling: Creating a Sense of Place
Pam Johnson Brickell
February 15 & 16 • 10:00 am – 3:30 pm • BYO Lunch

Join Pam for classroom instruction in watercolor and pen sketching along with hand-lettering. Put techniques learned into practice with plein air sketching around Port Royal’s Cypress Wetlands Trail. Gain observation and eye/hand coordination skills, learn about nature and most of all, discover the joy of capturing the area, you choose to call home, in your heart and journal!
Pam, a SC Master Naturalist, has an international following of her illustrated journals and is a contributing artist in Cathy Johnson's Artist Journal Workshop book, is a co-author of the book's companion blog, and an invited contributor of Johnson's Sketching in Nature blog.
Weather will dictate plein air sketching times. Plan A: classroom sessions from 10 – noon daily, then we’ll drive to the town of Port Royal for afternoon sketching along the Cypress Wetlands Trail. The trail is a half a mile in length and consists of pathways and boardwalks that are easily navigated and can be somewhat sheltered from the wind.
Do dress accordingly. Bring your sketchbooks and either a travel watercolor set or watercolor pencils, waterbrush(es), Micron pen, pencil and eraser.
We will eat lunch as we wrap up our classroom session. Please BYO lunch/drink so we can be efficient with our time. It will take 20 minutes or so to drive to Port Royal.
