Nature Drawing: Identifying & Drawing Animal Tracks
January 3 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm$60.00
Perri Howard and Mary Kiesau are offering nature journaling classes in January and February that combine educational excursions outdoors with indoor nature drawing lessons. Participants will explore and learn about the winter landscape while becoming more engaged naturalists and practicing drawing with a fun and supportive group. Attend individual classes or a series. All materials are provided and all levels, including beginners, are encouraged to attend. Take home completed work after each class.
Friday, January 3rd, 12:30-5pm
Identifying and Drawing Animal Tracks: Foot Morphology and Drawing Basics – Learn about the footprints for a variety of species, and what to look for in certain tracks, then focus on drawing them starting with shapes and proportion, contour and volume, and how to draw the distinction between things that are depressed versus raised.
Tuesday, January 28th, 2-5pm
Drawing Animal Tracks: Honing your Skills, $40. Dive straight into working with your challenges and questions. If you took the first class, or if you are already working on drawing tracks, bring some recent drawings with you along with areas you feel you need help. This “tune-up” class is for problem-solving and more specific one-on-one assistance. Take both track drawing classes and you’ll receive a $10 refund at the second class.
Each class starts with a short natural history excursion outdoors, on foot or snowshoes. The outdoor portion is optional. The class will then go to Perri’s studio at TwispWorks for drawing lessons and skills-building for three hours or so. With the opportunity to work from real life and photographs these sessions are designed for everyone at every level. Learn tips and step-by-step “recipes” for drawing and nature journaling, then hone in on details and more expressive techniques. More details will be sent before each class.
Space is limited to 12 people per class, and registration is required.
