Bird Journals for Beginners and Beyond: Quick Studies of Birds with Jude Siegel

 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, learn to do quick sketches of birds, then do more detailed drawings using specimens and references. You can learn so much about drawing a bird with quick studies! Finally, you can add some color and text for a fuller journal page.
