Wild Life Drawing Online: Microscopic Marine Life
4th Oct 2022 7pm - 8:30pm
This is a live-stream event
Join us this World Animal Day for a very special class where we will delve into the deep with marine biologist Igor Adamyeko PhD. We will be drawing a variety of the amazing microscopic animals that Igor studies, while hearing all about the way he goes about documenting them in the beautiful footage he shares through his instagram account The Story Of A Biologist.
We will study a variety of other-worldly creatures such as baby starfish, jellyfish larva, comb jellies (pictured) and juvenile sea urchins. The curiously cosmic quality of these microscopic marvels is made all the more wondrous by the fact that they are all just millimetres in size.
The class with be lead by artist and wildlife enthusiast Laura Cuppage who will begin with a demo and some her top tips on drawing sea creatures. We will be working from some beautiful reference images which are all Igor's own work. As the session progresses, Laura will be on hand for creative guidance, and Igor will be happy to any questions you have!
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 reference images, instructions and the Zoom link to join 48 hours before the event is due to start, or in good time if you booked your ticket closer to the event.
