This class teaches common approaches to illustrating birds and how to overcome the challenging proportions and perspective of bird illustration. Start with a how-to session on bird photography and learn how to effectively use photographic references in artwork. The second session takes place at the Denver Zoo, where you will study a moving subject while sketching and photographing it at rest and in flight. Learn bird anatomy and physical characteristics through group instruction and individual attention. Using provided props, reference sketches and/or photos, you will create a sophisticated bird portrait ready to be framed, submitted to an exhibit or included in a portfolio.

Prerequisite: Entry-level color media.

Fee: $265 member, $315 non-member.


Tue, May 19, 26 (Denver Zoo), June 2, 9, 16, 23, 1-4 p.m.
