Event Series Event Series: The Nature Journal Workshop

Africa Series: Four on the floor

December 1, 2022 @ 10:00 am 11:30 am PST

Learn the basic quadruped plan. This is essential for fast drawings of any four-legged mammal.

Learn how to quickly block in the body shape of any four-legged mammal. What should you notice and record first? What differences should we look out for as we move between species? What reliable generalizations can we make? How do these shapes change as we rotate the form? Join John Muir Laws for weekly live nature Journaling workshops with tips, techniques, inspiration, teaching strategies, and interviews. Topics are usually announced in advance of the workshop. If special materials or class-specific downloads are available, you can find them here in the class description before the class. All ages and experience levels are welcome. No registration is necessary.

Suggested donation: $20. Your donation helps support me and my family. Your generosity is deeply appreciated and it makes an immediate difference in my ability to continue to offer these programs. Click here to donate. If you are not able to donate at this time, no problem–please continue to enjoy the classes and find another way to pay it forward in your community with acts of kindness and service. Thank you!

If you are new to Zoom or are having trouble with the meeting controls, please see these notes and suggestions on Zoom Tips for Online Classes with John Muir Laws to help you get more out of the online workshop. When possible I will also make a recording of the workshop and post it on my blog. I look forward to seeing you there!
