Venture outside on the grounds of the Museum and draw close-ups of the natural world that beckons you.

There will be a guest appearance by Aldo, an American Kestrel who we’ll sketch quickly, using gesture drawing. During class, Museum Naturalist/Curator Elsa Hansen will talk about scientific illustration and its uses.

In the afternoon, Diana will demonstrate color techniques using color pencil, and watercolor pencil.
