Skulls Exhibit and the California Academy of Sciences Field Trip

November 23, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Note: this outing in not on the last Sunday of the month.

Join the Nature Journal Club to sketch and explore at the California Academy of Sciences on the last day of the Skulls exhibit.  We will meet at the front gates of the Academy and make our way inside to sketch the Skulls exhibit, Rainforest and Aquarium.

At 11:00 AM I will teach a free workshop in the Academy’s classroom space on drawing skulls. You may join if you wish or keep sketching if you have found your flow.  We will enjoy our potluck lunch near the baseball field behind the Academy at 12:30 PM weather permitting. If it is rainy, we will find a spot in the interior central courtyard.


It should be a great day to see, sketch, and wonder. If you are a member, please bring any guest passes you are willing to share with other families. Let us know on facebook if you have passes to share. We can get a group admission discount which will shave a few dollars off the cost of admission.

You may be eligible for free passes from your local library.

    Enjoyed getting my sketch on in the skull area today! So fun. Know where I can find contour drawings of shapes to print and practice drawing? Thanks!

    I can’t seem to find anything on Facebook that addresses the issue of the $35 admission price. No one offering guest passes and no sign of a questionnaire that relates to a group rate. Can you help?

    Hi. I have a couple of questions about this field trip. the museum opens at 11 on Sunday, 10 for members. Will we still be able to get in at 10 if we are not members? Also you mentioned bringing lunch and a folding stool, some museums don’t allow backpacks and umbrellas inside, will that be a problem? thanks
