Mixed Media Illustrations: Animal Basics
Tuesdays, February 3 – 17 / 6 – 9 pm
In this three-part workshop, learn basic drawing and multimedia techniques to create unique illustrations of animals such as birds, mammals, and sea life. We will look at a number of artists who incorporate animals into art and will learn a variety of mixed media techniques to produce a small series of artwork. Students will learn to draw animals, work with a variety of materials including decorative papers, photocopies, pencil, ink, wood, and more.
