Discovery Drawing

A way to encourage learning and observation of the detail of the natural world is by learning to draw it. That is our hope as we invite the public to participate in Discovery Drawing. Our educator Nathan Hawks is a talented artist and loves to share that talent with others. He leads a group ranging from kids to adults to learn how to increse their skills of art. 
During the museum's "Discovery Drawing" we use animals to step up our drawing game! During each month's workshop we focus on the basic shapes in all types of animals and how they relate to each other, essentially breaking down the animals shapes in order to make them easier to draw. Although some animal shapes are a little far out of the basic shape spectrum, everyone does a great job. We also learn the basics of adding textures, like fur, feathers, and scales to animal drawings to make them more interesting. Don't miss out on Discovery drawing! Every 2nd Saturday of the month from 2-3pm open to ages six and up! See you then!
