Nature Journaling ~ Drawing & Watercolor with the Yosemite Conservancy

This spring art workshop is so joyous that it borders on play. As artist Janet Takahashi shares her love of letters, art and journaling, you’ll sharpen and apply watercolor and calligraphy skills to translate spectacular Yosemite scenery into artwork. Take advantage of the inspiring setting and relaxed pace to produce a series of small sketches that reflect your surroundings and personal experiences. By the end of the workshop, you’ll have a sketchbook journal filled with reminders of your time in the park — and be prepared to continue creating beautiful, artful records of your journeys in Yosemite and beyond.
