1. To gain a deeper appreciation of the natural world both in my own backyard and in the wider world. I've always admired John Audubon's work, but felt intimated to try sketching and journaling. I'm glad to have found this course!
2. I would like to try to incorporate more scientific information about the plant / animal I am sketching, while still focusing on the art of making the journal.
3. Possibly including personal experiences about what you felt as you were sketching?
