“Artistic process and time spent with the ordinary and extraordinary wonders of nature is my constant joy.”
Triangle Land Conservancy members are invited to spend an afternoon in the woods of Brumley Forest Nature Preserve learning to let conservation inspire creativity under the tutelage of Jeannine Reese. Brumley Forest doesn’t open to the public until April 22nd but we wanted to give our members this special opportunity to experience this beautiful property through a creative lens. Jeannine Reese is a graduate of UNC who has a passion for capturing art in varying realistic and abstract forms: watercolor, pen & ink, collage, and papercutting. Her favorite artistic tool is using a sketchbook journal for recording thoughts, ideas, and images gathered from time spent traveling, gardening, hiking, or kayaking.
Jeannine’s journal makes a memorable record of inspirations and
images caught while traveling or investigating locally the nature in her home environment. On April 8th she will provide each student with a journal to start building their own collection of creative observations. Stops along the way will provide opportunities for instruction on technique, plant and animal species of note, and prompts for inspiration. All materials will be provided and no prior experience is necessary.
