The class that so many have asked and have been waiting for is here!!Imagine a gathering where the individuals are elegant, graceful, polished, and highly sensitive, decked in shimmering colours and glimmering gems, yet humble, industrious, and VERY down-to-earth!
You guessed it – they’re insects, and you’re their portrait artist!
Join scientific illustrator Kathryn Chorney for an afternoon of insect drawing, and absorb a bit of entomology (study of insects) along the way, as we look into the structure and amazing lives of these little creatures who appeared a long time before we did, and have long been a source of wonder, ideas, and imagination for designers, artists, and scientists.
Bring: sketchbook, drawing materials, and whatever other media you like best: ink, watercolour, and/or coloured pencils. A selection of pinned insects and magnifiers will be provided for use during the workshop.
