If you’ve hesitated to take live animal drawing because the notion of a moving subject seems daunting, then this is the workshop for you. You are right, they may not sit still! Catherine Nash will guide you in learning how to observe, memorize and then effectively sketch the basic shapes and structures that will lead to a greater understanding of animal form. Experience the wonder of studying these animals up close and in plein air as we learn about their biology from the very capable ASDM handlers and traverse the Museum grounds.  Become versed in noting behaviors and observe gestures and attitudes of movement, while learning to interpret the subject with a fluidity of mark making. You’ll learn how inspiring it is to work from life!
