Workshop: Rebecca Jewell & Sandy Ross Sykes - Drawing Inspiration from Natural History
Eye to Pencil with Rebecca Jewell & Sandy Ross Sykes
Eye to Pencil Studio
Wed 17 Nov 10am-4pm
Both artists work with found and preserved flora and fauna, using a variety of drawn, painted and printed materials. In their workshop participants will 'draw from a nature table' using Rebecca and Sandy's exceptional collection of specimens from nature. WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION
This one-day class will help participants build confidence in drawing and sketching a small collection of nature specimens. Considering light, shadows, form and colour, we will use different materials to develop techniques for drawing, including pencil, inks and watercolours.

The day will start with a presentation about Jan Van Kessel the Elder (1629-1679). The tutors will look at how his work can inspire and help us to record and interpret a collection of specimens. There will be a selection of unique and extraordinary natural history objects for participants to draw, including butterflies, feathers, beetles, bones, shells, seedpods and nature curios. Sandy and Rebecca believe that having 2 tutors enables students to really benefit from individual attention - their depth of knowledge is an advantage to both beginners and the more experienced alike. Each class is prepared with helpful information that participants may refer to and use as an aide memoire for future work.

This talk will suit architects, designers, engineers, artists, and students and professionals from the creative industries who would like to improve their drawing skills and their understanding of the potential drawing has as a medium.
