Join us in April to celebrate Easter Wild Life Drawing style, with the animals of the moment – Easter Bunnies. We'll also have some gorgeous Guinea Pigs coming along as well for good measure, because well, why not?! We'll be spending time observing these fabulous furries, learning how to sketch from life and learning all about them from Farmyard Manager Jenny. This class will also have a focus on responsible pet ownership, and we will be busting myths and discussing the very best ways of making sure your pet rabbits or guinea pigs are at their happiest and healthiest. And yes, there might be an opportunity for a little stroke or a snuggle at the end!
All our animals are rescued or rehomed and are visiting from the local Spitalfields City Farm, where they are cared for to the highest degree along with goats, sheep, pigs, chickens and the superstar resident donkeys; Derek and Bayleaf. This event will help support the farm – a charity in it's own right – and help to sustain its upkeep and provide happy homes for a whole variety of rescue animals! The farm also functions as an outdoor classroom and a source of joy for local schools and groups with learning difficulties, as well as working to conserve rare breeds of livestock.
The drawing class is open to all, from beginners to advanced. Children aged 7 and above are more than welcome as long as they are accompanied by an adult also taking part in the class. All drawing materials are supplied, including paper and drawing boards, but please feel free to bring colours or any other specific media you might like to use. We'll start with some fun drawing exercises and plenty of practical tips to get everyone started, and creative 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.
Wild Life Drawing is working with the finest animal handlers, sanctuaries and organisations to put on these events. All the animals that attend the sessions are well used to humans and different environments and are always accompanied by experienced handlers, their welfare is our highest priority.
