Explore Your Creative Side - Art and Photo Class at TRC in March!

Drawing Together - Photograph and Draw Raptors

Have you ever wanted to express your passion and enthusiasm for raptors in an artistic way?  Do you love art, and want to try drawing and photographing live raptor subjects?

This workshop, which is geared for adults and children to experience together, is a perfect way to weave education and art together. You will be introduced to some of The Raptor Center's winged ambassador raptors, and then participate in a discussion of how they fit into our natural world.  You will get to hold raptor bio-artifacts such as feathers and skulls, which are important objects of natural history. Following the short  presentation on digital photography and then photographing live raptors, the class will be introduced to the tools and techniques to portray live birds or bird artifacts.  You may find that the class time is not long enough to finish your artistic piece, but your photos can be used for reference for your continuing exploration of raptors in art.

Be prepared to photograph in natural (outdoor) settings, by dressing appropriately and bringing a camera of any type to capture reference material.

Beginners welcome!
