Session 1: Boars, Bison and other creatures.

An introductory session which focuses on understanding animal anatomy and the pros and cons of working from animate subjects. We will use pencil and sketchbooks, and practice a range of strategies to develop good drawing and seeing skills.

About Wildlife Drawing Courses at Wildwood

This series of drawing courses is designed to provide participants with a broad introduction to the basics of zoological anatomy and illustration, as well as tips on drawing an animate (and usually unpredictable!) subject. You will have the opportunity to explore Wildwood and draw your favourite animals from life, and to experiment with different approaches and media. The emphasis will be on rapid sketching in situ, but there will be some classroom work, with opportunities to work your sketches up into more finished work. As each session focuses on a different subject and medium, you can book single or multiple sessions.

Course tutor: Kristiina Sandoe.
