THIS MONTH'S TOPIC: How to Keep an Illustrated Field Journal
Ok, get ready for something totally different. Tonight naturalist, biologist, educator, and artist John "Jack" Muir Laws will teach us how to start and keep a daily illustrated field journal. Jack, who spent six years backpacking the Sierra Nevada to research and illustrate The Laws Field Guide to the Sierra Nevada, will share tricks and techniques for drawing birds, mammals, plants, and landscapes; noting signs of the season; and achieving the discipline and good habits that will help you keep your journal going once you've started. Learn to observe and appreciate the natural world in a whole new way. No drawing experience is necessary. Bring your own sketchpad and pencils if you want to follow along.
