Event Details

Brighton, we have one 'shell' of a class coming your way! This June, join us at SEA Life Brighton for a relaxing and serene after-hours drawing class. We will focus on Antiopi the Loggerhead, 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 at ocean life. You will be welcome to wander around the space at your leisure, sketching not only the turtles but the sharks, rays and all the other gorgeous fish to your heart's content. 

The class will begin with an introduction from one of the aquarium’s expert team members, who will teach us all about the natural habitats of turtles, 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, healthy, and comfortable being around humans. The aquarium works closely with its partner charity, SEA LIFE Trust, to protect marine wildlife and habitats across the world and to communicate key conservation messages to its visitors.
