John Muir (Jack) Laws is doing free sketching demonstrations at 5 different locations. This hour-and-a-half class will be repeated five times over two days throughout the Bay Area. See locations and times below. These events are free, but I strongly encourage you to put some money into Jack's donation bucket to support this work.
Tuesday February 11
Marin: Richardson Bay Audubon Sanctuary 10:00-11:20 AM
San Francisco Building 989 in the Presidio (behind the Warming Hut at Crissy Field) 12:30-2:00 PM
San Mateo County Edgewood Park Education Center, 3:30-5:00 PM
Wednesday February 12
Alameda County: Oakland Museum of California, 12:00-1:30 PM
Santa Clara County McClellan Ranch: Santa Clara Valley Audubon 3:00-4:30 PM
Here's the event description on Jack's website:
Learn the basics of mammal anatomy that are relevant for the field sketcher. Discover how subtle differences in skeletal structure make big changes the way an animal looks. Learn a few critical muscles that are prominent beneath the fur. Discover tricks for suggesting the feel and depth of fur without drawing in every hair. We will pay particular attention to and learn tricks to quickly draw large ungulates such as deer and elk in preparation for our Point Reyes field trip.

Note that this is a Guest Post: not an official SF Sketchers meetup, but a sketching-related event that might be interesting to some people in the group.
