Special Event: Cheetahs–Conservation and Art

December 4, 2023 @ 9:00 am 10:30 am PST

Monday, December 4th is International Cheetah Day and a time to celebrate these magnificent animals and their uniqueness. As the fastest land mammal, with the ability to go from 0 to 60mph in 3 seconds, cheetahs are the most unique of the big cats. Their speed, beauty, and grace have won hearts worldwide, and today, we ask you to spread awareness of their plight in the wild. Less than 7500 individuals remain, in only 31 populations around the world. Cheetahs suffer from human-wildlife conflict, genetic instability, habitat and prey loss, climate change, and the illegal wildlife trade. Help us raise funds to save this magnificent animal in the wild, and become an ally for cheetahs.

I will be joined by Jess Sorrentino of the Cheetah Conservation Fund and Marcia Sivek of the Cheetah Conservation Fund and the BeProvided Conservation Radio PodcastWe will discuss current efforts in Cheetah conservation and what we can do to help the species. 

Then we will explore aspects of the cheetah’s anatomy, structure, and patterns to draw these amazing animals in a close-up portrait and a running action pose.

If you can not join us live, I will make a recording of the workshop and post it on my blog. All ages and experience levels are welcome. I look forward to seeing you there. The class is free but you need to register to attend. Please consider donating to support Cheetah conservation when you register. All donations go to support the Cheetah Conservation Fund.
