Join us for a weekend of exploring, reflecting and recording as we create one-of-a-kind maps in a setting ideal for this creative immersion. Whether documenting trip highlights through the North Cascades, noting plant communities of a landscape or simply telling a story about your own home and neighborhood, a personal map can reflect the stories and experiences that connect us with place.

Jocelyn Curry2
Working with artist Jocelyn Curry and a provided art supply kit, participants will create artful maps of the Diablo Lake neighborhood, or a personal map project if desired. Instruction will include basic map iconograpy, drafting and coloring guidance. Useful hand-lettering model sheets of historic forms will be included.

Tuition includes two nights lodging and seven meals at the North Cascades Environmental Learning Center in North Cascades National Park, as well as a basic mapmaking supply kit that includes papers (for map, tracing), pens (vintage dip pen nib with holder and a Faber Castell Artists’ Pen XS), permanent ink, a reference booklet and instructional handouts.

Drawing experience is helpful but not required.
