Capturing Memories in Watercolor and Ink

Learn to record your experiences through beautiful pages.

Online Workshop with Claire Giordano Saturday, November 20, 10am–12:15pm Pacific

Color swatches, paintings, and notes, oh my! Join adventure artist Claire Giordano for a joy-filled workshop exploring watercolor, ink, and pencil techniques to create beautiful pages of visual notes.

Claire first started making her distinctive “memory pages”–a combination of nature journaling, mini paintings, and candid notes–over five years ago, and they quickly became her favorite painting practice. 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.
