Learn to draw real animals with Wild Life Drawing.
WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
Instead of human models, our subjects are real animals. The drawing classes are open to all, from beginners to advanced. The aim is to inspire a sense of appreciation and understanding for animals through creativity, and to raise awareness of conservation issues around the globe.
WHAT WILL I BE LEARNING?
Wild Life Drawing is run by Jennie Webber, London-based illustrator and animal lover, who will be on hand to help and advise on all the artistic elements of the class. This class is informal and relaxed, and open to all levels of skill. So if you haven’t taken the time to put pencil to paper since school, this is one for you. If you’re a seasoned pro, this is a unique opportunity to sketch wild animals in real life. Each class focuses on a different species. In the past, students have drawn donkeys, tortoises, meerkats, parrots, owls and even lizards. As well as drawing the animals, you will hear all about their habitats, behaviour, and any conservation issues affecting that species.
THE ALL IMPORTANT DETAILS
Classes are around 2 hours in length, usually from 7-9pm on weeknights (subject to change), with weekend classes also available. There will usually be a minimum of 3 Wild Life Drawing classes per month to choose from. This is an adult class, open to those over 18. Wild Life Drawing takes place all over London. All the materials you need will be provided, (although if you do have your own painting set, or a favourite block of charcoal, please feel free to bring it along).
