As the nights draw in we will focus our next class on Nocturnal Animals – meeting and drawing species that come out only at night, with Blossom the Striped Skunk, Hoglet the Pygmy Hedgehog, Blinky the Leopard Gecko, Vega the Gambian Pouched Rat, Whites Tree Frogs and Turbo & Speedy, two Giant African Land Snails. Each of these animals has evolved super senses, either acute hearing, a sensitive nose or big eyes to let in what little light there is. We will hear about the amazing nighttime habits these animals have developed, as well as learning about their diet, habitat and any conservation or welfare issues affecting these animals. These animals have all been rescued or rehomed, and we will take this opportunity to talk about responsible pet ownership and the current regulations in the UK around keeping exotic animals.
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. We will then be introduced to our furry, spiky, scaled and slimy friends, and we'll learn about their particular foraging techniques and evolutionary adaptions as well as how that species is currently doing in the wild. There will be a drawing demonstrations and plenty of helpful hints and creative guidance will be on hand from 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. 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.
