Join us to celebrate Easter the Wild Life Drawing way! On Good Friday 2nd April, we'll be meeting and drawing the beautiful bunnies and charming chickens on Vauxhall City Farm via live video link. We will spend half the session with the rescue rabbits, learning about their incredible ears and the origins of the Easter Bunny. Then we'll head over to meet the hens – all named after superstar singers and with magnificent feathery hairdos – and learn about how to choose ethical eggs.
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, with a focus on anatomy. There will be a drawing demonstration before both sections of the shapes and proportions to identify and some handy hints for capturing the fur and feathers. We will then switch screens to be introduced to the animals and we'll be chatting with Chris the Education Manager to find out all about our animals, plus exciting news about the impending new arrivals on the farm. We'll spend around 35 minutes drawing the bunnies and then the hens from life, and there will be plenty of creative guidance and demonstrations along the way to help you with your drawings.
