Drawing Mammals: the final details (Saratoga)

June 16, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am PDT

Join the Nature Journal Club for a 1.5 hour workshop to round out our exploration of mammal anatomy, structure, and drawing techniques. This will be a fun draw along lecture so bring your sketchbook and pencil. In this workshop we will:

  • Explore ways of rotating a simple mammal model in your head so that you can draw the foreshortened form from any angle.
  • Analyze a few interesting species and practice getting them down on paper.
  • Study common postures and how to draw them.
  • Learn prominent muscle and bone “landmarks” to help you better understand what is going on under the skin and how to draw what we see.


This class will be held in room SM36 at West Valley College. The closest parking lot is lot #2. You can purchase a parking permit at the dispenser in the lot for $2. Download a campus map with the location of the classroom here.

All ages and experience levels are welcome.  No registration necessary,

$20 suggested donation.
