Experience a real personal connection with the spirit of nature in wild birds by a simple process of focused attention to seeing like you've never seen before. Results almost always reveal a  surprising likeness, essence and more. 


We will carpool to Habitat Sketching site with return arrangements. On arrival to the sketching location, we will walk to our first bird sighting and sketch. Wrap-up is a "show and tell" plus our Birder Guide comments about the birds we saw. 


This is drawing for fun and preservation awareness. Artist or not, you can capture fleeting moments!

Push the boundaries of creativity! - Not magic, just scribble-mesh molding sculpting, shadows are the 4th dimension. We will practice conventional drawing as we closely  observe posture, form, and motion. With our drawing as a general  guideline, we go wild building loose volume by scribbling. That’s the  magic. Then we pinch, squeeze and pound the mesh into the form we want. Scribble-Mesh-Molding wire sculpting without limitations of the  armature is Jonqui’s self-invented technique. Tools provided per session. 

10am-12noon
