Join Michele Cooper at the North Cascades Environmental Learning Center to learn the crafts of journal-making and watercolor painting to create a unique personal expression inspired by the natural world.

Teaching to all levels, Michele will lead our group in creating a handmade nature journal and filling its pages with a variety of watercolor techniques — a flexible medium that seems designed especially for the mystical Pacific Northwest!

The Environmental Learning Center's neighborhood offers endless inspiration and subject matter to practice our plein air painting in a supportive environment of fellow artists and nature lovers. Together we'll carve out the deep shadows of early morning on Pyramid Peak, dab our brushes wet-on-wet to express the mid-day chartreuse of vine maples, glaze the limitless light of summer skies and drybrush the late afternoon waves on Diablo Lake.

When you’re not painting, feel free to soak up the views, linger on the shores of Diablo Lake, enjoy delicious organic meals on the deck of in our dining hall, find a book to curl up with in the Wild Ginger Library and rest in comfort at night in our guest lodges.

Art supplies are not included in tuition; you will receive a list of what to bring prior to class.
