How to Draw Owls (Zoom)

June 5 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Note: this class moved to Friday!!

I love sketching owls. They have a wonderful blocky body form, a huge expressive face, interesting angles, and subtle camouflage markings.  We will study the body structure, how to draw the head from the front (they often stare straight at you) 3/4 view (the coolest angle), and how to represent their plumage and markings in various media, This live workshop can hold 500 people. I will also 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!

    Hi John,

    I’ve been taking your marvelous bird drawing zoom classes. You are an amazing teacher! Knowledgeable, personable, kind. Thanks you so much for all your insights, especially the one about a duck smile which made me realize that perhaps that’s the reason Daffy Duck came into being, because of that little duck smirk. We’d have to be able to ask Tex Avery, Daffy’s original animator to know for sure, but I have a great suspicion…

    To my question, would you be available for a consultation on a children’s book about a lonely owl I’ve written and drawn called “Rio Valentino: The Lonely Owl” which tells the tale of a persistent burrowing owl who hoots and hoots despite not being able to find a mate. I wrote it to tell a story about the importance of biodiversity, stewardship, to give kids knowledge about the habits and habitat for a burrowing owl…BUT, some of the drawings are better than the others. Your raptor class gives me some tools to understand why, but it would be great to have you flip through my illustrations with me, and give me your feedback about what could be improved upon. I would be happy to pay you for your tie, or make a donation, however you like to do it. Please let me know if that is a possibility! Many thanks! Again, I think you are amazing!
