Overcome your insecurities about sketching moving winged things and join in this four-week class to develop your observational abilities, basic knowledge of bird anatomy, and drawing skills. Each class begins inside, but we'll go outdoors if weather permits. We'll use photos, mounted specimens, and live birds as our models. Challenging? Yes, but you can do this!
May 30: Introduction, Warm-ups, & Bones
June 6: Shapes & Proportions
June 20: Feathers & Scales
June 27: Live Sketching
Drawing/sketching experience not necessary. Meet at Joppa Flats Education Center. Bring a 9"x12" sketchpad (not newsprint), drawing pencils, a white eraser (General's Tri-Tip recommended), and a kneaded eraser. Drawing pens and other sketching tools also welcome.
