An art workshop for children 8 - 12 years
Join celebrated author, illustrator and art educator Sandra Morris to learn how to draw animals such as a guinea pig, rabbit, chook and a dog (animals vary each time).
Sandra will take children through the steps of drawing live animals - from looking initially at basic shapes and then drawing the form. Children will learn to complete quick gestural studies then longer intense observations. Please note that we will have live animals on site at various times (likely to be a friendly dog, a rabbit or hamster, a bird or a reptile) so please consider this if your child suffers from allergies. This course is suitable for children 8 - 12 years of age.
Bring a packed lunch and a water bottle. All materials are supplied for the course. If your child has access to an iPad or iPhone, that would be a helpful tool, but not essential.
I am passionate about wildlife and children having access to animals, and I think studying their behaviour and expressions and body form will bring about a greater understanding and compassion for the animal world.
