Join us online with with children’s book illustrator Val Lawton as we explore drawing grassland wildlife.

In this 4-week NatureSketch Online: Grassland Wildlife course you will learn art fundamentals such as line drawing, understanding shapes and shading techniques, with a fresh and fun approach that will encourage budding artists to create beautiful nature sketches. Using eco-literacy principles from world-renowned artist and naturalist, Robert Bateman, we encourage participants to connect to nature through art and observation.

We will cover sketching some animals and landscapes of the grasslands drawing what you see and observe, understanding the basics of value, texture, light, and shadow, understand that everything is made of basic shapes, and learn some basics of nature journaling and new understandings of some animals and plants.
