Event Details

Come join us to draw and explore the Galapagos, with some of the most iconic animals from the Islands – tortoises, iguanas, geckos and snakes. Of course, the animals attending the session are not actually from the Galapagos, but distant cousins of the Giant Tortoises and Marine Iguanas that populate these incredible areas of biodiversity. We’ll be hearing from the Galapagos Conservation Trust about the unique ecosystems that exist on the islands and their influence on our own biological understanding of the world. We will also be discussing the variety of conservation projects running on the Islands to preserve this natural area of diversity and some of it's more vulnerable animals. 10% of each ticket sold will be donated to the Galapagos Conservation Trust and there will be information for everyone to take away. As well as drawing the terrific textures and patterns, the reptile handlers will also be full of facts about the animals they’ve brought along to the session – the animals will be visiting from a local reptile sanctuary which gives home to unwanted pets and run educational sessions about animal welfare.

The drawing class is open to all, from beginners to advanced. All drawing materials are supplied, including paper and drawing boards, but please feel free to bring colours or any other specific media you might like to use. Drawing tips and guidance will be provided throughout the session. The aim of these drawing classes is to inspire a sense of appreciation and understanding for the animals and their conservation in the wider world.

Wild Life Drawing is working with the finest animal handlers, sanctuaries and organisations to put on these events. All the animals that attend the sessions are well used to humans and different environments and are always accompanied by experienced handlers, their welfare is our highest priority.
