This laid back class is created for the beginner or intermediate Nature Journaler. Explore a few of the extraordinary forms of cactus in the desert southwest and gain a greater appreciation for their iconic beauty. You will become more familiar with the amazing diversity, adaptations, and life history of cactus while putting together an informal botanical scrapbook to illustrate your discoveries using a variety of techniques, including sketching, watercolor paintings, and the written word. A portion of the time will be spent on the museum grounds visually and verbally recording what you see and learn.
