2023-01-10 19:00:00 2023-01-10 20:30:00 Europe/London Wild Life Drawing Online: Baby Sloths (Live) After all the rushing around of the festive season, we thought it would be a good idea to start the new year off at a nice leisurely pace, with a live class drawing Baby Sloths. No speed-sketching here- we will take our time to draw these gorgeous young snooze lovers. While sloths are one of the slowest moving animals around, they are also surprisingly strong. From the moment they are born, baby sloths are able to lift their entire body weight with just one arm!  We will meet the group of baby sloths that are currently recuperating at the Jaguar Rescue Centre, in Costa Rica via live video link. This fantastic facility provide a safe haven for injured, orphaned and ill animals, with an aim to release back to the wild whenever possible. While we draw we will learn the individual stories of our mossy models and all about the amazing adaptations that make sloths so unique. The class with be lead by artist and wildlife enthusiast Laura Cuppage who will begin with her top animal drawing tips. We will be drawing the sloths as they move about freely (albeit very slowly), so Laura will provide plenty of advice on sketching moving models. The team at Jaguar Rescue Centre will be happy to answer your questions, and will have lots of fun sloth facts to share throughout the session. 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. 50% of ticket profits will go to Jaguar Rescue Centre. https://wildlifedrawing.eventcube.io/events/44152/wild-life-drawing-online-baby-sloths-live Live virtual stream event
