Lichen Art: A Field Journal Page is a day-long workshop that will guide you through field observations of lichens, basic pencil sketches, pen outlining, and coloring techniques. Minnesota artist and author Lisa Meyers McClintick will help you depict some basic lichen structures using photos and lichen specimens for inspiration. She’ll also help you write about observations and create a beautiful entry for a nature journal we hope you’ll continue to fill. Coffee, tea, snacks, and art supplies (watercolor journal, watercolor field set, pencil and waterproof outliner pen) will be provided. Just bring lunch or plan to buy it at the cafe onsite and any specialty snacks you may need for the 30-minute lunch break.

Art and Nature go so well together. Come out and try your hand at nature journaling and water color painting. It will be a great day to learn about lichens, nature and enjoy each other's company.

The course cost is $50 and includes course manuals and supplies.
