Capturing Memories in Watercolor & Ink
February 19 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm
This event is hosted by the North Cascades Institute
Class Tuition: $50
Join adventure artist Claire Giordano for a joy-filled online workshop exploring watercolor, ink, and pencil techniques to create beautiful pages of visual notes. Claire is a watercolorist par excellence, educator, community scientist, and adventurer. Her work captures the drama, serenity, and chromatic wonder of the natural world.
She first started making her distinctive “memory pages”–a combination of nature journaling, mini paintings, color swatches, and candid notes–over five years ago. They quickly became her favorite painting practice and now she wants to share it with you!
Whether you are on the trail or at home enjoying photos of a recent adventure, Claire will share her approach to creating quick sketches, page layout, and experimenting with color to quickly record what we experience, see, and feel while exploring nature.
By painting along with Claire during this participatory workshop, you’ll learn the techniques to create a simple yet captivating visual record of your outdoor adventures, dripping with color.
Claire Giordano is an environmental artist, writer, and educator creatively exploring the interwoven patterns of people, place, and climate change. In her interdisciplinary work Claire strives to create visual and virtual spaces that foster connections between individuals and our warming world and inspire curiosity and empathy for our environment.
This class is for all levels of painters or sketchers. Claire is excited to share the fun and creative process with you! Please note that everyone who signs up for Claire’s class will be subscribed to Claire’s monthly art newsletter where you can follow along on her painting adventures and learn about her future art classes
