Talented Portrait Artist Got Her Start With Nature Friend Art Lessons

“I was introduced to Nature Friend through my cousin Naomi. At her house, we used to sprawl on our tummies with pencils, fresh white papers, and stacks of Nature Friend magazines, and draw for hours!

I never asked for art lessons as a girl because I had heard they were expensive. Nature Friend‘s ‘You Can Draw’ lessons gave me the foundation I needed.”

Coleen Barnhart, Portraits in Oil

Nature Friend Subscriber Photography Group Shares Passion & Knowledge

“More than a year has passed since I first joined this wonderful group of people who all share a few uncommon passions: nature, photography, and the glory of God. Back then I had no clue what an f-stop was. I’d never heard of the word ‘bokeh.’ Who cared about noise? I just wanted a picture with a bird in it somewhere.

Now, you all can see the difference for yourselves; and it’s all thanks to you. Many of you were quite willing to share your knowledge and teach me the ropes. I learned so much in just a short time.”

Anna Boggs, Age 16
