Sketching animals from life

by Mary-Anne Bartlett on March 7, 2018

Join Art Safari to sketch animals with Shelly Perkins at Chester Zoo.  Learn to sketch animals in fast lines, working out shapes, lines, tones and colours – and learn not to be daunted when they move around at this exciting sketching Art Safari workshop.

This is a day of art, fun and observation at the zoo. You will go home with confidence in your animal sketching, ideas and experience on how to tackle moving animals and doubtless with lots of material to work from in the future for finished art works… and maybe it will inspire you to travel to see them in the wild.

The workshop will start at 10:00 with coffee at the Bembe Coffee Shop (right next to the main entrance) and introductions and wildlife drawing techniques before setting off for the day.  Shelly will coach you throughout the day, giving one-to-one instruction as well as demos.

The workshops must be pre-booked through Art Safari. To confirm your place please complete and return the booking form and send your payment of £55 for your tuition (excludes zoo/park entrance).
