I am very happy to say that thanks to popular demand, and after many requests, this is finally…..
…a Wings, Worms, and Wonder book with
projects specifically for adults!
Grown from the signature eCourses “Draw Yourself Back to Nature,” “Draw Deeper Into Nature,” and “Connecting with Color,” this book compliments and expands on the art techniques, projects, and nature connection concepts presented in the self paced video courses.
It is designed to be used independently from the eCourses – but it also expands on and supports them!
Draw Yourself Back to Nature, the book, is also appropriate for many adolescents.
It works great as an interdisciplinary cross curricular nature art curriculum for:
- secondary level students in Montessori schools,
- formal middle and high school classes (think biology & botany field journal work & arts classes),
- non-formal education centers (nature centers and science & art museums),
- and adolescent level homeschool environments!

The reviews are rollling in!
“Kelly Johnson is an endless wellspring of nature connection ideas and inspiration. This book will show you how to use creativity as a tool for discovering more about nature and begin to explore the world around you with curiosity and wonder.”
Bethan Burton, International Nature Journaling Week
“I have long admired Kelly Johnson’s enthusiasm for combining Creativity with Nature. Both are integral to our humanity – being connected to our Creative Instincts and being connected to the Earth through Nature. Kelly’s book helps us to do both, with a LOT of Creative Play, which is always a wonderful way to absorb learning about the vast world of Nature that surrounds us.
Mother Earth needs healing, as we all do, and Kelly is an excellent guide toward facilitating this healing as she helps us really see the world of Nature through the creative play of drawing and painting what YOU see in Nature.
You don’t need to be an artist to use this book, all of the exercises are fun, creative and accessible to all ages. However, you might find you have developed into an artist when you’ve built your personal practice of exploring and journaling your observations about Nature!
I highly recommend this book!”
Monica Moran, The Creative Beast
