To tide us over until our rescheduled classes, I'm delighted to announce a special online drawing class in collaboration with Wild at Heart Foundation to raise money and awareness for their worthy canine causes. We’ll be drawing WAHF rescue dogs of all different sizes, breeds and colours over Zoom; and all of them have happy rehoming stories to tell. We will hear about some of the abuse suffered by dogs in countries where the laws protecting animals are not reinforced, and learn about some of the success stories, where special dogs have been able to have specialist surgery funded by donations and how we can get involved to help!
50% from the price of each online ticket will be donated to Wild at Heart Foundation – and we'll be joined by members of their team (along with their rescue dogs) to tell us all about some of the neutering projects they run overseas and how they're working to combat the brutal mistreatment suffered by strays, plus advice on ways we can get involved to help. This charity works to compassionately reduce the world's 600 million stray dog population by organising rescue projects, neutering programmes and education initiatives.
The drawing class is open to all, from beginners to advanced and it will begin with an introduction from WLD founder and artist Jennie Webber, who will take you through the basics of drawing dogs from life. There will be a demonstration of the shapes, proportions and anatomical features to identify and some handy hints for capturing movement.
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 Wild at Heart Foundation.
