Observe the wonders of the natural world and capture what you see and feel as you draw, paint, and write in your own journal.

Learn how to use drawing, watercolor paints, and your own words in a way that is accessible, stress-free, and inspiring. Rosemary Connelly provides a relaxed, encouraging, and quiet environment, allowing you to focus on what you want to convey. Using techniques from the book Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain learn how to slow down, focus on your subject matter, and let your creative side shine. Group demonstrations, one-on-one instruction, and sharing are a part of this experience. Discover the joys of creating a watercolor journal as a memento of your travels around the world or around the garden!
