Drawing Seabirds
Online Short Course
Mondays at 2pm
5th – 26th September 2022
4 Weeks £33.50
Learn to draw a selection of seabirds such as Gannets, Terns, Puffins, Gulls and Shearwaters. Take a look at anatomy and wing shapes, making gesture drawings, capturing character and telling a story in your drawings through use of environment, interactions and movement. You will work from both still and moving images. This will be a fun weekly class exploring pencil, pen, charcoal and watercolour/water-soluble coloured pencil drawing techniques for seabirds with demonstrations and tuition from artist and tutor Bethany Milam. At the end of each session there will be an optional extra 15mins for one-to-one feedback to be given. Suitable for beginners and intermediates. Work from reference photos and videos provided by the tutor or use your own references.

These Live lessons will be held on zoom. You will receive emails each week with reference photos and materials lists, you will also have access to an online file containing lesson notes, reference images, materials lists and extra topic information. Feedback can be given during lesson time. You will have access to a closed Facebook group to interact with other students.
