The Art of Illustrating Insects Workshop Series
Feb. 1, 8, 15, & 22nd (Wed.), 6:30 – 9PM: Class in Heron Hall
This workshop will focus on the scientific illustration of beetles, butterflies, and other insects. The practice of drawing not only heightens the artists’ observation, but also results in a work of art that can beautify any living space. The emphasis in this workshop will be on conveying anatomical structure and creating aesthetically pleasing visual communication. Exercises will allow participants to practice drawing techniques as they work toward a finished piece. Specimens, magnifiers and drawing materials will be provided. Instruction is geared to all levels and all participants will receive individual assistance.
