Wildlife drawing: owls
Royal Society of Sculptors
Fri 29 Oct 11am-1pm
Join Wild Life Drawing to celebrate this year’s Big Draw Festival with a morning of meeting and sketching owls! In line with this year’s festival theme, Make the Change, we’ll be using drawing to understand owls and learning how we can help to protect the habitats these birds call home. The class will begin with a short talk from an experienced falconer and participants will learn about owl anatomy, their unique characteristics and how they’ve evolved to use sound to pinpoint their prey from the air. The falconers will be full of facts about where to see these birds in the wild (even in/around London) and any conservation issues affecting these species. All these owls are truly charismatic with their own individual personalities and attendees are guaranteed to go away with some great drawings and a new found respect and admiration for these beautiful birds of prey.

This half term class is suitable for both adults and children, with everyone aged 7 years and over welcome at the class as long as they are accompanied by an adult also taking part in the class. The drawing class is open to all abilities, from beginners to advanced. All drawing materials are supplied, including paper and drawing boards, but please feel free to bring colours or any other specific media you might like to use. Drawing tips and guidance will be provided throughout the session. 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.
