Bird Nests: Rendering Their Unique Beauty

June 3 @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 10:00 AM, repeating until June 4, 2021

In this class with botanical illustrator Carol Ann Morley, students will bring to life one of nature’s wonders, the bird’s nest. Through close observation, students will discover the pattern of the weave and identify horsehair, grass, twigs and other plant materials. Participants will then learn how to ‘map out’ the nest construction before drawing in their choice of mixed media with colored pencils, pen and ink and gold paint on toned papers. The instructor will supply the bird nests to draw. Some drawing experience suggested.
