9:30 am Drawing and Painting the Animals of Southwest Wildlife with April Howland
Paint and draw wildlife from life at Southwest Wildlife. Being offered for the second year in a row—a painting class with local artist April Howland. Howland’s work features wildlife and pets in bold, gorgeous color. This four-week long course begins with a tour of Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center to introduce you to our gorgeous wildlife models—bears, mountain lions, bobcats, coyotes, foxes and more. Subsequent weeks will allow you to sit at the animal enclosures as long as you like to draw or paint from real life.
Howland will offer activities and coaching as you work on your pieces. Bring your own art supplies and easels. Sit and relax and become one with your art. All skill levels welcome. Pencil, watercolor, acrylic and oils are all welcome. Artists are encourage to work several pieces over the course of each class time as animals are free to roam their cages and cannot be counted on to pose for too long!
The class meets on Mondays for four consecutive weeks from 9:30 am to 12:30pm, October 15th through Nov 5th. (Oct 15, Oct 22, October 29, and Nov 5th)
Cost is $200 per person.
