Wild Life Drawing: Sea Turtles
4th Apr 2023 6:30pm - 8:30pm
at SEA LIFE Brighton
Brighton, we have a turtle-y awesome class coming your way! This April, we will be at the stunning surrounds of SEA Life Brighton (the world’s oldest aquarium!) for a dreamy after-hours drawing class. We will focus on Antiopi the Loggerhead Turtle, and Lulu and Guliver who are both Green Sea Turtles. We will learn all about this amazing, ancient species group and the fascinating adaptations that make them so adept to ocean life. You will be welcome to wander around the space at your leisure, sketching not only the turtles but the sharks, rays, seahorses and all the other gorgeous fish to your hearts content.
The class will begin with an introduction from one of the aquarium’s expert team members, who will teach us all about these gorgeous animals, and the issues affecting them in the wild. You will then be given some top drawing tips from our class leader, artist Laura Cuppage, who will then be on hand throughout the session with as much creative guidance as you’d like. We will provide everything you need to get sketching- a drawing board, paper and a wide range of materials to experiment with, but if you have any trusty favourites do feel free to bring them along too. The class is open to all abilities. Whether you’re a dab hand or an absolute beginner, with a few of our top tips for drawing moving models, we’re sure to have you sketching away in no time!
Here at Wild Life Drawing we are a small team who are dedicated to animal welfare. We only ever work with the best organisations and animal handlers, and ensure that we only ever draw animals who are happy and healthy, and comfortable being around humans. 50% of your ticket price will go to the aquarium and its partner charity the SEA Life Trust, to go towards their important work protecting marine animals and habitats across the world.
