Fascinating Feathers, Fabulous Fur – Workshop with Jackie Garner
June 15 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Creativity is enhanced by extensive drawing skills.
In this workshop, participants will use a variety of drawing techniques as they explore wildlife textures and structure. As well as using a range of traditional pencil techniques, participants will discover the creative possibilities that water-soluble graphite, graphite powder, and graphite sticks afford. A must for both art and wildlife enthusiasts.
Jackie Garner, author of the acclaimed The Wildlife Artist’s Handbook, is a professional artist from Gloucestershire. She has exhibited locally and nationally, with organisations including the Society of Wildlife Artists, The Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours, The Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, and Falkland House in Westminster. Formerly the education officer at Nature in Art museum, Jackie now divides her time between gallery paintings, illustrating books and magazines, and teaching art workshops. Jackie’s current project is illustrating a ground-breaking research project, which investigates the wildlife species depicted in ancient Egyptian art.
