Event Details

We'll be celebrating Halloween at Draw Brighton this year, where we'll be sketching our much-loved wolves. These "wolves" are actually British Lupine dogs that are perfectly tame and loyal domestic pets as well as being perfect wolf look-a-likes – they have pure wolf in their bloodline. They still retain their pack mentality, eat only raw meat and howl at the full moon – yet love cuddles and roll over for belly rubs! The class will be introduced to the “wolves” with a short talk from Canine Behavioural Scientist and 'Head Wolf' Natalie Lagstrom, and we’ll look in detail at their anatomy and how they’ve evolved to adapt to a variety of habitats across the globe. As it's Halloween, we'll also touch on the perception of wolves in fiction and folklore and how their reputation has been tainted. 

As well as drawing these amazing animals, we will discuss current conservation issues facing wolves in the wild – plus the results of their incredible reintroduction to Yellowstone. Our wolf experts are full of facts and will be ready and willing to answer any questions you might have and of course, everyone can have a stroke and a cuddle at the end! 

The drawing class is open to all, from beginners to advanced. 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. 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.

And 10% each ticket price will be donated to Wolf Watch UK – which is a non-profit organisation that provides a remote 100 acre woodland sanctuary in Shropshire for wolves that have been displaced due to zoo closures, dominance fights or excess breeding that would otherwise have been euthanised. They're not open to the public, therefore keeping the environment for the wolves as close to their natural secluded habitat as possible.

Wild Life Drawing is working with the finest animal handlers, sanctuaries and organisations to put on these events. These British Lupine dogs are friendly and safe, they are devoted domestic pets and are cared for to the highest possible degree by an expert in their species. 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.
