Event Details

Snakes, spiders and dragons (of the bearded variety) will be the spooky stars of our online Halloween Special this year. We'll be joined online by some of the rescued reptiles and arachnids that have been rehomed by Snakes Alive, and we will have a chance to observe these animals up close without any fear (perfect for those trying to overcome a phobia!) As well as drawing, we will be busting some myths about snakes and spiders, and improving their reputations with some fantastic facts.

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 the shapes, proportions and anatomical features to identify – before we go live to the animals themselves! We will then switch screens to be introduced to our regal reptiles with fun facts and conservation information. We'll spend just over one hour drawing the different 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.
