“One way to open your eyes is to ask yourself, "What if I had never seen this before? What if I knew I would never see it again?”
-Rachel Carson

Illustrated nature journals are a way to capture and communicate our observations, impressions, and emotions inspired by experiences in the natural world. The weaving of words with images captured through drawings and photographs can convey a sense of place…and ignite the sense of wonder that is alive in all of us. In this session, we will make artful handmade journals out of recycled materials, engage in writing and drawing exercises to help us hone our observation and communication skills, and explore tools and techniques to help us engage with nature in a meaningful way.

About Janet Moore

For as long as I can remember, I have used art and writing to explore, understand, and communicate my interpretation of the natural world around me. As a working artist and avid nature journalist, I have drawn from nature to create art in many forms, including botanical watercolors that are part of many public and private collections and exhibitions. With a dual B.S. in Art and Environmental Studies from UW-Madison, and in my current work on a Master’s in Environmental Education program at UW-Stevens Point, I’m currently exploring the intersection of art and science in education and in our daily lives. By exploring examples gathered from my personal experiences as an artist, writer, and naturalist, you will be inspired to create art and writing that connects the sensibilities of the arts with the sense of science.
