Friday 23 June 2017  Drawing from Life at Marwell Zoo (Winchester)


Mary-Anne Bartlett and Karen Pearson have a feast of observation for you.

At our workshops in zoos and safari parks you will sketch animals in fast lines, working out their shapes and colours – and learn not to be daunted when they move around.  You will go home with lots of new material as well as the experience of drawing from life.  It’s also great fun.  Brochure sketches 073

The zoo workshops are led by Mary-Anne Bartlett, Karen Pearson and can be treated as a one-off experience or as a series in studying animals. 

Many people choose to come to the zoo before and after safaris in Africa.

Art Safari day sketching workshops costs £45 per day, excluding your *zoo/park entrance. 

Please book in advance on 01394 382235 or by email on info@artsafari.co.uk   Spaces are limited.

We usually meet at 10am, followed by a briefing, then a succession of exercises throughout the day until 4.30pm. Detailed information will be sent to you on booking.Zoo workshop with Karen Pearson
