Madison Art Society to present Jan Blencowe "Keeping a Nature Journal"

The Madison Art Society will host a presentation entitled "Keeping a Nature Journal" by artist Jan Blencowe on June 8, 6:30 p.m. at the Madison Senior Center, 29 Bradley Road, Madison, CT.

Keeping a nature journal creates a treasure trove of ideas and inspiration. Learn to develop sketching skills that will inform your plein air and studio paintings, filling them with authenticity and life. Jan will have plenty of her own nature journals on hand, suggestions for how to get started, ideas for documenting and learning about the plants and animals you encounter, and methods for quick, “sketching on the spot” techniques in a variety of media.

Jan Blencowe is a Connecticut landscape painter and keen observer of the natural world. She keeps a nature journal and explores and documents her life through visual and illustrated mixed media journals. She is a member of the American Society of Naturalists and a licensed JourneyCircles™ facilitator. Her sketchbook, Winter in Connecticut, is part of the permanent collection at the Brooklyn Art Library in New York.

The public is welcome and the presentation is free.
