Special Event: Penguins and Conservation II

September 3, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT

Join the Nature Journal Workshop for a special class on drawing penguins and a discussion with Pablo Barcia Borboroglu of the Global Penguin Society about penguin conservation and stewardship. Learn advanced tricks to help you draw penguins in perspective, proportions and patterns for different species of penguins, and penguin habitat, and learn how you can get involved in protecting penguins across the earth. The tricks and techniques in this month’s class will build on those from the first penguin workshop.
