Drawing on Creativity: Nature Art Beyond Imagination
March 7, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm$60
Observing nature has inspired many artistic flights of imagination. Join teaching artist and science writer Rachel Mirus in a multi-session course that will use nature study through observational drawing to learn about a selection of familiar animals, from birds to beetles. The course kicks off on Sunday, March 7 at 12 p.m. and runs to April over online videoconference sessions.
From the basic foundation, the class will follow in the footsteps of scientific illustrators and storytellers to invent our own reconstructions of vanished animals such as the dinosaurs or our own versions of folk animals such as the jackalope. Along the way we will cover field sketching, adding color to drawings, watercolor gradients, and more.
