These 8-week sessions are designed for beginners to nature journaling. Classes focus on learning how to use watercolor pencils, a portable journal, and other materials supplied by the Garden, to observe and appreciate the nature around you. All class dates are held virtually through Google Meet, with optional in-person meet ups at Naples Botanical Garden scheduled throughout the session.
