Wild Escape Drop-in and Draw! Connecting with Nature through Art

Tuesday 22nd August, 10.30am-2.30pm, Field Studies Centre

An opportunity to spend time drawing items from our natural history collection, including taxidermy animals and birds, butterfly and insect specimens, skulls and fossils. There will be some different creatures to draw from those at our last session. A range of art materials will be provided such as pastels, charcoal, watercolour paints and sketching pencils as well as different papers. You are also welcome to bring your own materials. This is not a taught or guided session, just an opportunity to enjoy creating your own artwork!

This event forms part of the Wild Escape- you can submit your artwork to be part of the Wild World collective art project. More details here:
