Discover how to quickly and accurately draw birds with naturalist, educator and artist John Muir Laws, who is the author and illustrator of The Laws Guide to the Sierra Nevada and The Laws Pocket Guide Set to the San Francisco Bay Area. He will discuss the basics of bird anatomy and demonstrate tricks to help you learn to draw birds whether for field notes or for the pleasure of sketching. The goal of the workshop is to help you master the one-minute gesture sketch and learn tricks on how to draw heads, wings and feet. No previous drawing experience is necessary.


For ages 10 and up. Space is limited. Please reserve a space online or call 415-379-8000. Note: This workshop does not require admission to the Academy and participants should plan to meet at the Business Reception Desk from the Middle Drive East business entrance.
