News from our Contributors

Hi all...please let me know if you've got news and I'll be happy to add it here!  Doing a workshop, taking a trip?  Let us know!

Here are workshops from Pam Johnson Brickell you won't want to miss if you're in the area:

Illustrated Nature Journaling: Creating a Sense of Place
Pam Johnson Brickell
February 15 & 16 • 10:00 am – 3:30 pm • BYO Lunch
Coastal Art Supply
812 Port Republic Street • Beaufort, SC • 843-524-2787

Fee: $175
$75 deposit
Min/Max 5/8

Join Pam for classroom instruction in watercolor and pen sketching along with hand-lettering.  Put techniques learned into practice with plein air sketching around Port Royal’s Cypress Wetlands Trail.  Gain observation and eye/hand coordination skills, learn about nature and most of all, discover the joy of capturing the area, you choose to call home, in your heart and journal!  

Pam, a SC Master Naturalist, has an international following of her illustrated journals and is a contributing artist in Cathy Johnson's Artist Journal Workshop book, is a co-author of the book's companion blog, and an invited contributor of Johnson's Sketching in Nature blog.

Weather will dictate plein air sketching times.  Plan A: classroom sessions from 10 – noon daily, then we’ll drive to the town of Port Royal for afternoon sketching along the Cypress Wetlands Trail.  The trail is a half a mile in length and consists of pathways and boardwalks that are easily navigated and can be somewhat sheltered from the wind. 

Do dress accordingly.  Bring your sketchbooks and either a travel watercolor set or watercolor pencils, waterbrush(es), Micron pen, pencil and eraser.

We will eat lunch as we wrap up our classroom session.  Please BYO lunch/drink so we can be efficient with our time.  It will take 20 minutes or so to drive to Port Royal. 



  1. Oh I so wish I could be there PJ. Sounds like a wonderful class and I love Beaufort. Hope you have a good turnout.

  2. Thanks, Paula. Perhaps someday you will!

  3. Pam, I wish I could be there it is a while off so maybe I can, it's not far from Virginia. I is beautiful country and anyone that has never been there should try to attend. I sure it will be a great class, I was stationed at Parris Island in 1972-1973.
