Rescheduled for February 22nd & March 2nd.

This illustration course taught by Katharine Dickinson will bring the fun of drawing to the world of birds. Strengthen your observation skills for studying birds, while developing your illustration skills. In the first class of this 2-part series, capture the plain form and essential bird features with simple sketches. In the second class, explore adding touches of watercolour to your drawing. After this course, you’ll have the confidence to bring your sketchpad out to the park, or to VanDusen Garden, or Bloedel Conservatory (admission sold separately), and connect to birdwatching through art. Online education techniques include presentations, live front view, and overhead demonstrations. 

For this series, participants are encouraged to have the following materials at home:

  • 11x14 multimedia sketchbook
  • 2H, HB and 2B pencils
  • Eraser
  • Watercolour paint set or your preferred colour media

This course will take place online, and recordings will be available for a limited time to participants. Pre-registration required.
