This group is for anyone looking to deepen their understanding of sketching the natural world. If you are enthusiastic about wildlife and the natural world and want to meet other like-minded people, you are welcome to join. Once a month there is a regular evening class held at The American University on Richmond Hill. The classes will aim to develop your observational drawing skills with a combination of learning and looking. Each class will start with a presentation, from comparative anatomy of quadrupedal mammals to the symmetry of flowers. These presentations with fun interactive activities will deepen your knowledge of the underlying structures found in the natural world. Each class will introduce students to unique adaptations found in the diverse range of species we share the earth with.
The second part of the class will be a practical session. As the seasons change, Richmond’ Park seasonal fauna will provide first hand observational material to work from. Towards the summer, we will be venturing out into the Park and sketching the views from Richmond Hill. These classes are for all abilities, from beginner to proficient artist.
There will also be free weekend meetups, such as sketching at zoos, museums, farms and London’s parks.
