Journaling Summer Series: Get that Bird Pose! with Jude Siegel
Join Jude to learn how to see differently and how to drop unrealistic artistic expectations. 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, and register for each separately.
In this class, learn to observe more skillfully and translate it into your journal. Simplify and draw exactly what is needed to represent the birds you see. Then add some watercolor to liven up your page. We’ll focus on ways to simplify markings, capture the pose, and note the most important details. Jude will share penwork and watercolor hints.
Space is limited to 10 participants per session.
- This is an in-person class to be held indoors at Portland Audubon in Heron Hall. Masks are optional.
