Field sketching and journaling is a centuries-old activity that has recently seen a large increase in participation globally as more people turned back to nature for improving well-being during the pandemic, and for healing digitally fractured minds.  This inexpensive activity — only a pen and a notebook is required — emphasizes developing observational skills, recording what is observed, and asking questions about nature and its phenomena. Through this mindful activity, participants develop a deeper understanding and love for nature.   One does not need to be an artist or a naturalist to begin journaling and field sketching. These skills can be learned by anyone, and are developed through regular practice.  In this presentation naturalist and author Roseann Hanson will demonstrate the art of field sketching and journaling, the science behind the development of “visual intelligence,” and how to integrate this activity inexpensively in a wide variety of nature walks, trips, and even scientific expeditions.
