For our next live broadcast from the London Aquarium, we'll be delving deep into the Amazon Rainforest. We'll have a live zoom link to view different areas of the Rainforest area, featuring crocodiles, terrapins, piranhas and Bowser the Snapping Turtle. We'll be learning about the Amazonian ecosystem and some of the conservation factors affecting the rainforest, plus what we can do to help.
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 some of the reptiles – before we go live to the aquarium! We will then switch screens to be introduced live to the rainforest animals with fun facts from James, Head Aquarist at SEA LIFE London. We'll spend 45 minutes drawing and we'll switch our viewpoints throughout to make sure we see all the species.
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.
50% of each ticket sold will be donated to the Sea Life Trust.
