Nature Journal Club

Large birds tend to soar on locked wings. As they catch a thermal, they pass overhead again and again, showing you the same angles and views. In spite of this, they are challenging to draw if you do not understand the basic structure, wing angles, and foreshortening principles. In this class, we break down wing fundamentals and foreshortening with hands-on foldable models, learn how to understand and the basic angles that we see all the time and unexpected and counterintuitive angles that you never dared to draw.

Tools to bring if you have them:

  • Journal
  • Scissors
  • You favorite drawing tools

All ages and experience levels are welcome.  $20 suggested donation.
