Erin and I attended a journal making class in La Crosse on Saturday, October 18. This is designed to integreate art into science instruction. We made one journal out of a cereal box and practiced taking field notes in that one. We drew leaves we found outside and we drew a pigeon feather. Next we made a nicer quality journal with book board and fine paper. It was a great class and the overlap of drawing, and other forms of art, to seeing fit right in what we want to do.
In collaboration with artist Nancy Macgregor (www.nancymacgregor.com) there will be an outdoor watercolor class that meets along the Yahara River in Madison. We are going to look and listen to the Word at the start and the Wold for the remainder of the course.
