Once a Month Nature Journal Project

Sketch Outdoors – From the Archives

With the return of the warmer weather, many of us are spending more time outdoors in nature. It could be a nature walk, a hike in the wilderness, or just a stroll around your own yard. Wherever you end up this week, try to do a little sketching in your nature journal en plein air (in the open air).

Nature Journal Page Ideas

  • Find an interesting place to sit under a tree, alongside a creek, in an open field. Let the environment inspire you to sketch the scene.
  • Gather a few small things to draw while you sit outdoors. Pay close attention to detail and make appropriate captions.
  • Take your journal along with you on picnics, camping trips, and vacation spots.
  • Find a spot in your garden, yard, or local park to visit frequently and create sketches for your nature journal.
