Summer Programs / Youth Enrichment -
Connecticut is teaming up with wondrous wildlife! In this course, learn how to draw wild animals in Connecticut! Students will learn how to draw the features including eyes, noses, and fur as well as learn practical methods of drawing to capture anatomy and gesture. Pencil drawing techniques learned will give students the tools they need to improve their approach to drawing. We will focus on Chipmunks, Cottontail Rabbits & Bobcats in June; Skunks, Racoons, and Fox in August.
Materials needed: pencils (4B or similar), erasers (recommend kneaded & vinyl erasers), drawing paper/pad (9x12 or 11x14).
A PDF of our subjects will be shared after our first class for convenience printing. Instruction will take place through Zoom. Registrants will receive an email from Farmington Continuing Education (email@example.com) containing a link and instructor information before the start of the course.
