Let’s NOT make art! 
This is what I decided to title my latest blog post. What I mean by this is that many (in fact, most) adults have the belief that they can’t draw and if the goal is to make art it can cause them to freeze up and not even begin. But nature journaling is not about making art. It is about connecting with nature through observation and immersion. You don’t have to be an artist to do this.
.
When we are children we draw with such freedom and ease. At some point in childhood we start to be critical of our own work and stop drawing. Let’s learn how to drop the self-criticism and draw like children again, with freedom and ease. Children don’t ‘make art’, they just draw and express themselves.
.
If you’re feeling nervous to put pen to paper because you think you can’t draw, let yourself loose by trying some blind contour and modified contour drawings. The results are always so funny and the feeling is of great freedom! To learn more about these two techniques, check out the blog post at journalingwithnature.com.
.
Have you noticed the point at which children begin to criticise their work or question their drawing ability? What age does this start? How do you think we could help young people to maintain the drawing habit into adulthood?

I believe, if you look carefully, you will see it wasn’t just a rainbow; it was a DOUBLE rainbow over Fountain Square tonight!
