Slithery Subjects— Drawing Desert Reptiles

November 19 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm PST


Learn the art of sketching our desert reptiles while studying their physiology and natural history. 

John Muir “Jack” Laws is one of the world’s most widely known teachers of nature journaling. His approach emphasizes the growth mindset—that anyone can learn to draw and sketch in their field notebooks and journals—while he imparts not only sketching tips and tools but also an infectious joy in nature and its creatures. By the end of class, you will have new skills in drawing live animals you can use in your field notebooks and nature journals.

We’ll host a video stream of live reptiles with Tumamoc’s Robert Villa, who is also president of the Tucson Herpetological Society. Beto will introduce you to a rosy boa, a desert tortoise, and a Gila monster who will model while you learn to sketch.
