Wild Life Drawing is a drawing class with a difference. Instead of human life models, our subjects are real animals.
11:00 - 12-30
Celebrate Halloween by meeting, drawing and making friends with "wolves" this October Half Term. Our British Lupine dogs are perfect wolf look-a-likes, eat only raw meat and howl at the full moon – yet still remain friendly and loyal domestic pets. Our wolves will be accompanied by their dedicated expert owner and behavioral scientist specialising in canines, so as well as drawing we will learn all about how dogs became man's best friend, wolf conservation across the globe and the depiction of wolves across the horror genre.
The drawing class is open to all, from beginners to advanced. Children aged 10 and above are more than welcome if accompanied by an adult taking part in the class. All drawing materials are supplied, including paper and drawing boards, but please feel free to bring any other specific media you might like to use. Fun drawing exercises, tips and guidance will be provided throughout the session. The aim of these drawing classes is to inspire a sense of appreciation and understanding for the animals and their conservation in the wider world.
Wild Life Drawing is a drawing class with a difference. Instead of human life models, our subjects are real animals. The classes intend to inspire a sense of appreciation and understanding for animals and conservation issues affecting them around the globe. Education is a primary focus, so as well as drawing the animals, the group learns about their habitat and diet, their lives in the wild and any conservation or animal welfare issues affecting that species.
Wild Life Drawing works only with the finest animal sanctuaries, charities and small selection of trusted animal handlers to put on these events. All the animals that attend the sessions are happy around humans and in different environments and are always accompanied by expert handlers, their welfare is our highest priority. Wild Life Drawing has worked to raise awareness and donations for charities including the RSPB, Battersea Dogs Home and the Sea Life Trust.
Wild Life Drawing was founded in 2014 by Jennie Webber, a London-based artist and animal lover. The drawing classes intend to reconnect those living in cities with the wonder of nature through creativity, in the hope that it will encourage more people to protect our planet and it's animals.
