This new series of life-drawing classes sounds like a hoot. The first one especially, as instead of human models, participants will be drawing live owls. Wild Life Drawing is working alongside animal sanctuaries and organisations to organise the events, with the money from ticket sales funding conservation and protection projects. Pencil-pushers will be led through a series of short warm-up exercises before settling in to produce a more finished piece. Pencils and paper will be provided but those who want to work in colour are welcome to bring their own materials. October's event is Halloween themed, featuring a variety of bats (October 28). This class is open to adults of all abilities; stay tuned for future kids' classes.
