The Art of Live Animal Drawing - September 21 - 22, 2018; Instructor: Gail Guth

This two-day workshop will help you capture the essence of live animals on paper, observing and recording their shape and motion; we’ll focus more on overall form and much less on details (that’s for the studio later!). The workshop will begin on Friday, Sept. 21, at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln with a bit of classroom instruction, slow-motion DVD’s and a few warm-up exercises, then on to sketch the cows, horses, and other assorted farm animals. On Saturday, we’ll travel to the university farm for more sketching time. Inclement weather may change our schedule, but we’ll have indoor shelter if needed.
