Sketch Group

sketch group at River's Edge in LovelandSketch birds with us at River's Edge Natural Area on Friday Jan. 18 from 9-11am. FREE!

Registration preferred - sign up now

We will be doing some fun birds - sketch cheats of course - and hopefully identifying some residents of River's Edge Natural Area. We'll have indoor options if the weather actually becomes "wintery"!

Come develop a different awareness of what is around you. Join our small group and enjoy viewing natural objects while trying out recommended techniques for sketching and recording what you see and experience. Sketchbooks provided or you may bring your own.

This program is ideal for those who may be interested in nature journaling or those wanting an "activity" that will bring them outside. First time participants will receive an orientation to the "art" of nature journaling. Returning participants are asked to check in with the group before sketching on their own.

There will be a "sketch cheats" or journaling techniques lesson half way through each session that is optional for any participant. We'll all gather together during the last 10-15 minutes and share (optional) and cheer each other on.

This group is designed to make beginners very comfortable and encouraged, and everyone more knowledgeable about the nature around them. As days get shorter, we may change the times but we'll always try to schedule on the third Friday. (as days get hotter in the summer we may even switch to evenings!) If the weather looks bad we'll send out alternate plans via Offero email.
