*Canceled* Bird Journals for Beginners and Beyond: Capturing Bird Basics with Jude Siegel

This class been canceled due to unsafe winter weather driving conditions.

Join Jude to learn how to see differently and how to drop unrealistic artistic expectations of yourself. Start or continue your bird journal. No art or birding experience is needed! For joy, not mastery! Keeping a bird journal is fun, easy, portable, and a creative, relaxing way to record your experiences with birds.

We will explore excellent tools for recording your bird experiences, both at home and in the field. Each class focuses on a specific aspect of journaling and reviews the basics. Relaxation is encouraged, and your unique style will be celebrated. Please take as many classes as you wish in the series.

In this class, you will gain observation skills and learn to draw birds in any pose. Less detail and fuss and more suggestion is an effective key for successful bird journaling.

  • This is an in-person class to be held indoors at Portland Audubon.

  • Masks are required for this particular class due to the many viruses circulating.

  • Space is limited to 10 participants per session.
