Event Details

This next drawing class is very close to my heart. Earlier this year, my fiancé and I adopted little Emil, a black Labrador cross from the streets of Bosnia via Wild at Heart Foundation. We've seen him develop from nervous and unsettled into a happy, glossy and loving dog who we can't live without! This charity works to compassionately reduce the world's 600 million stray dog population by organising rescue projects, neutering programmes and education initiatives.

I am delighted to announce two special Wild Life Drawing classes in collaboration with Wild at Heart to raise money and awareness for their worthy causes. We’ll be drawing rescue dogs of all different sizes, breeds and colours (including Emil!) all that have been successfully rehomed and have happy stories to tell. 50% of each ticket price will be donated to Wild at Heart Foundation – and we'll be joined by members of their team to tell us all in person about some of the projects they run overseas to help combat stray dog populations, plus advice on ways we can get involved to help.

The drawing class is open to all, from beginners to advanced. Children aged 8 and above are welcome if accompanied by an adult partaking in the class. 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. Drawing tips and guidance will be provided throughout the session, with an in-depth demonstration of how to draw animals from life at the beginning of the class. 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. For this class we are only drawing dogs that are happy around humans and comfortable around other dogs, with plenty of treats and toys to keep them occupied. Each dog will be accompanied by their owner at all times, who will be giving their time for free – hopefully in return for a few pet portraits. 

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
