This November we're back for a real-life after-hours class at the SEA LIFE London Aquarium to get up close and personal with Sharks. Our drawing class will focus on the two largest shark tanks in the aquarium; home to Sand Tiger Sharks, Nurse Sharks and White and Black Tip Reef Sharks. As well as these shark species, there are also two rescued Green Sea Turtles, Southern and Cownose Stingrays and a Bowmouth Guitarfish – half shark/half ray – alongside a multitude of fish. Although we will predominantly be focussing on Sharks, attendees will have free rein of the aquarium to draw from all the species.
The aquarium in Westminster is home to thousands of species of aquatic animals – many rescued or rehomed – and it's tanks collectively hold over 2 million litres of water. The aquarium works closely with it's partner charity, the SEA LIFE Trust, to protect marine wildlife and habitats across the world and to communicate key conservation message to it's visitors. The charity works to increase marine reserves globally, leads campaigns against plastic pollution and overfishing and has just recently opened the world's first Beluga whale sanctuary in Iceland for ex-performing cetaceans. 50% of each ticket sold will be donated to the SEA LIFE Trust!
The class will start with an introduction to the aquarium's marine life and the conservation issues affecting sharks across the globe. Attendees will be able to explore the shark tanks with their drawing boards and helpful hints and guidance will be on hand from workshop leader, illustrator Jennie Webber. The drawing class is open to all, from beginners to advanced. All drawing materials are supplied, including paper, 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.
