Drawing and describing nature

Lyn K. Baldwin is a plant ecologist who researches the use of drawing as a learning tool to learn about 'place' and nature. She believes humans have thought their way out of nature and that “there is no guarantee that thinking alone will lead us back” (Baldwin, 2018). Baldwin feels the most effective way people can change their relationship with place is by keeping a journal. 

In the article Drawing Care: The Illustrated Journal’s “Path to Place”, Baldwin discusses four types of journals people use to record the world around them. Learn more about these journal formats and view examples here.
