Sketch and Journal at Shell Beach!

April 8 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

In the month of April, the North Coast Nature Journal club will be heading back to the beautiful ocean with our sketchbooks and watercolors as well as our observation skills and our learning intentions. This site will provide a perfect opportunity for practicing the drawing of compelling landscape scenes including rocks, water, and coastal bluffs. We will go over several techniques specifically designed to help you portray these subjects with line work or in watercolor. There is also a secret nature journaling activity designed by John Muir Laws that we will try out at the beach. It has been especially created to hone our observation skills.

We will not be hiking long distances but the trail will be uneven down to the beach and we will be walking on some on sand. Be prepared for sun and for wind. A small folding stool could be useful. This location has a bathroom and free parking. Bring a potluck item that is not too hard to carry onto the trail because we will not want to go back to the parking lot for lunch. Picnic on the beach!

$20 recommended donation

Use this map to find us! We will be in the Kortum Trail parking lot standing around with sketchbooks and binoculars. I can’t wait to see you there!!
