Event Details

Join us for a Round the World Trip in August, where we will meet, draw and learn all about animals from the different continents around the globe. Hailing from Australia will be Simon the Skink and the little rescue Sugar Gliders, who feed on the sweet sap of the of eucalyptus, acacia and gum trees in the Australian Rainforest. From the Americas we will meet animals considered pests, but are truly loveable and friendly – like Blossom the Striped Skunk and Odie the Opossum. Our African species will be the Pygmy Hedgehog, and special guest invertebrates the Giant Land Snails and Train Millipedes. We will learn how these animals have adapted to their particular habitats and the evolutionary paths in the different continents.

The drawing class is open to all, from beginners to advanced. All drawing materials are supplied, including paper, but please feel free to bring colours or any other specific media you might like to use. Drawing tips and 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 comfortable in different environments, their welfare is our highest priority. These animals will be attending with two highly experienced animal handlers that not only care for these animals but also re-home other unwanted exotic pets or rescue animals. These animals will be in specially designed runs, with plenty of enrichment activities and hidden treats to keep them occupied and happy for the time they are with us, whilst mirroring their natural behavior. All animals go through a 'Heath and Happiness' test before attending any external events, and are positively rewarded with their favourite foods. 10% of each ticket sold will be donated to the South Essex Wildlife Hospital.

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
