Event Details

There are few animals more peculiar, more iconic or more delightful than the giraffe. They are the tallest mammals on earth, with bulls reaching staggering heights of almost 6 metres. They are generally peaceful and sociable creatures, and even behave honourably in combat. Recent research has shown that large male giraffes do not take advantage of their size and status to pick on smaller bulls, and will only spar with evenly matched opponents.  

For this online class we will be live streaming with Collette Massier, who is part of the team at Na'ankusê Animal Sanctuary in Namibia. We will be working from reference images of the rescued giraffes who freely roam the reserve. Collette will teach us all about this amazing species and what it’s like to work with them, and give us an update on the latest news from the sanctuary. The class will be led by animal artist Jennie Webber, who will begin with an introduction to observational drawing. She will provide plenty of creative guidance throughout the session so that by the end of the class your pages will be filled with life and character. 

The class is open to all abilities and all artistic styles are celebrated. The aim of our classes is to have fun and enjoy the process while learning about animals- there's no pressure to create a masterpiece! The basic materials you need to take part are some paper, a pencil an eraser and a pencil sharpener, but if you’d like to experiment you’re free to get creative with your choice of materials!. The reference images will be emailed to you along with instructions and the zoom link 48 hours before the event is due to start, or in good time if you book your ticket closer to the session. 

50% of profits will be donated to Na’ankusê
