It’s life drawing but not as you know it. Instead of human life models, creatures great and small come to ‘sit’ for us…or wriggle about, in the case of Jemima the micro pig.
Artist and animal lover, Jennie Webber, will guide you through the ins and outs of sketching animals from life be it wolf-dogs, corn snakes or baby owls. Throughout the session you’ll also hear from experts, learning about the animals’ habitat and distinct characteristics.
The animals’ welfare is of the highest priority and their handlers always come along too, making sure they’re comfortable throughout the class. Species attending the session are subject to change as only happy and healthy animals are brought along. Additionally, a proportion of each ticket sold will go directly towards benefitting the animals with a donation to the associated charity or sanctuary which work to rehabilitate and rehome your new friends.
Saturday 21st September
11am and 2pm
For the next instalment of our Wild Life Drawing class we'll be joined by the friendliest wolves this side of Canada. Okay, okay, so our furry friends are in fact British Lupine dogs... but they do have pure wolf in their bloodline and have even been known to howl at the moon, so they happen to be the perfect wolf doppelgänger.
As well as learning to sketch, and draw the animals the under the expert guidance of illustrator Jennie Webber, you'll hear from Canine Behavioural Scientist and 'Head Wolf' Natalie Lagstrom about wolves' anatomy and how they’ve evolved to adapt to a variety of habitats across the globe. You'll also be discussing current conservation issues facing these wonderful creatures.
The drawing class is open to all, from beginners to advanced. The aim of these drawing classes is to inspire a sense of appreciation and understanding for the animals and their conservation in the wider world...and of course, you'll get to have a stroke and a cuddle at the end.
10% of each ticket price will be donated to the Wolf Conservation Trust.
