Event Details

Delighted to announce a day of drawing classes with colourful parrots on the top floor of Ace Hotel this March. We'll be meeting and drawing four vividly colourful Macaws –  Scarlet, Blue & Gold, Blue Throated and a Hyacinth Macaw. These beautiful birds will be accompanied by one of the UK's leading parrot experts, who works to boost populations of rare and endangered species in the wild. We will learn all about these colourful and charismatic birds; their intelligence and ability to talk, their lives in the wild and the many conservation issues affecting the birds in rainforests across the world. 

10% of each ticket will be donated to the World Parrot Trust. Rooted in science, this charity is dedicated to saving the world's parrot population by bringing together experts and conservationists to action effective programs to protect the birds and their habitats.

All drawing materials are supplied, including paper and drawing boards, but please feel free to bring colours or any other specific media you might like to use. We'll start with some fun drawing exercises and plenty of practical tips to get everyone started, and creative guidance will be provided throughout the session. The aim of these drawing classes is to inspire a sense of appreciation and understanding for the animals and their conservation in the wider world.

Wild Life Drawing is working with the finest animal handlers, sanctuaries and organisations to put on these events. All the animals that attend the sessions are well used to humans and different environments and are always accompanied by experienced handlers, their welfare is our highest priority. Barrett Watson is one of the most distinguished parrot experts in the UK and he provides a vast amount of educational information for responsible parrot ownership, campaigns against wing-clipping and is a published author on the species.

Tickets are non-refundable but can be transferable to another name. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch with Jennie on: info@wildlifedrawing.co.uk

*Species attending the session are subject to change as only happy and healthy parrots are brought along.
