NATUREART LAB: SKETCHING AND UNDERSTANDING BIRDLIFE
Not sure where to begin with how to capture your favourite backyard birds within your art?
This NatureArt Lab workshop will cover the basics of field sketching birds, understanding bird behaviour, avian natural history, and capturing the iconic features of our feathered friend. You will be given the tools and confidence to bring life and charism into your avian artworks.
Students will practise field sketching, as well as studio sketching and focus on particular avian features – feathers, beak/feet texture, anatomy etc.
By the end of the workshop you can expect to have multiple sketches of your favourite backyard bird species as well as a finalised illustration capturing your bird in a natural pose.
