Sketching Animals – 1pm to 4pm

The world around us is in constant motion, and capturing this movement is the artist’s dilemma. In this class, a series of briskly paced exercises will keep us on our toes and help us stay loose while drawing. We’ll let go of the need to create a perfect product and instead dive into the beauty of unfinished sketches that capture the flick of a jackrabbit’s ear or the path of a bird through the air. Graphite and ink.
