Event Details

Our next online drawing class is especially for all you avid guinea pig lovers out there! We will be meeting and drawing eight charming guinea pigs via Zoom, broadcasting live from their home at Spitalfields City Farm. Originally rescued from South Essex Wildlife Hospital, these guinea pigs vary in colouring and hairstyles and will be chattering away to us in their own guinea pig language while we draw them.

The class will begin with an introduction from WLD founder and artist Jennie Webber, who will take you through the basics of drawing animals from life. There will be a drawing demonstration of how to draw guinea pigs, with special tips on the (potato based) shapes to look out for! We will then switch screens to be introduced live to the animals with fun facts from Jenny on the farm with the opportunity to ask any questions that you like. All the animals will have specialised enrichment activities and plenty of greenery to snack on and comfy spots to snooze so we will see these animals at their most relaxed and natural!  

The basic materials you need to take part are paper, a pencil, eraser and sharpener, but of course you are more than welcome to work in whatever materials you enjoy or have to hand. Please get in touch if you need advice on materials, we're happy to help! You will be emailed the Zoom link to join and some reference images 24 hour before the event is due to start.

Money from the ticket sales for this event will go towards keeping the farm going, and making sure the animals are kept fed and watered during this tough time.
